Metro US now 5th in circulation

metro ny 2009With 591,000 daily circulated copies, Metro US is now the the 5th largest newspaper in the US after the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the NY Times, and the LA Times but before the Washington Post (583,000) according to a press release by Metro US.  (Reuters).

The sources for the two sets of data, however, are different as the major paid newspapers are audited by the Audit Bureau of Circulations, while the Metro data comes from the Certified Audit of Circulation report (only available to members) so the method differs.

ABC measured April-September 2009 and showed an average decline of more than 10% compared to last year.

[an earlier version mistakenly mentioned the Washington Times as the first paid paper after Metro]
