Free circulation in Europe 2012: minus 9%

In Europe, circulation of free newspapers declined with 9% in 2012 (15.8 million) compared to the previous year (17.4 million). The number of countries is stable since 2011 (27), but the number of titles went down from 82 to 74.

Because of closures in Spain (Què!), the Netherlands (De Pers), Italy (City) and Denmark (Urban), circulation declined in those countries.

In Austria, the Czech Republic, the UK, Switzerland, Sweden and Russia, however, circulation increased. (click on graph for bigger picture)
