Board Actions Applying to Canadian Community Newspapers
TRAC Form (Circulation Breakout by Analyzed Issue) – Starting with the quarter ended June 2017, Community newspaper publishing members will report top-line circulation data for an analyzed issue for the following three categories: Total Non-Paid Individual Circulation; Total Non-Paid Bulk Circulation; and Total Paid Circulation. The analyzed issue may be any issue published in the quarterly reporting period. Publishers are also required to report how this analyzed issue compares to the average of the other issues published in the same period. The reporting of this information is mandatory for all newspapers.
The CNA1-2 (Circulation by Issue) form on which publishing members have historically reported a perpetual inventory of circulation is optional providing the member has comparable internal reports to track each issue published in the reporting period.
