Print Audits

Since 1914, our organization has provided media buyers with more than audited circulation data—we’ve provided trust and a venue for media companies and their buyer partners to communicate and make decisions to govern the industry.

Today, print audits continue to be an important component of our service offerings. We offer audit programs for each media division to show buyers comparable, trusted information. All publisher members also have access to our publisher relations managers, who are available to review circulation operations, publicity materials and subscription offers to ensure they comply with AAM rules.


In addition to paid circulation audits, newspapers can choose from a variety of services such as coupon audits, FSI verification and branded edition audits to enhance their audience data and prove their local market reach. Learn more about print newspaper services.

Consumer Magazines

AAM offers several services for magazines to show advertisers vital data about their cross-media brands beyond the essential circulation audit. Magazines can also choose the Consolidated Media Report, Supplemental Data Reports and more. Learn more about magazine services.

Business and Farm Publications

AAM offers a range of audit services for business and farm publications to show advertisers their reach in target markets, including group statements, pass-along receivership studies and Supplemental Data Reports. Learn more about business publication services.

For All Publications

If your publication wants the discount of a second-class mailing permit, AAM offers a postal verification service that is accepted by the U.S. Postal Service. AAM will authenticate your mailing activity as an annual inspection of circulation activity for second-class mailing materials. This service is available to AAM members and nonmembers.
