Danish frees cut back circulation

Free Danish paper MetroXpress and Urban cut down their circulation in the first six months of 2008 compared to the year 2007.

Metro had an average circulation of 228,000 (236,000 in 2007) while Urban distributed 208,000 copies against 217,000 in 2007.

The circulation of 24timer is not audited by Dansk Oplagskontrol. Total circulation of 24timer (majority owned by Metro International) and Metro is 430,000 according to Metro International, which would mean a circulation of no more than 200,000 for 24timer. Last year the reported circulation was more than twice as much.

Total circulation in Denmark has now dropped to 640,000 – from almost 2 million at the end of 2006. The last official number for Nyhedavisen was 457,000.
