The circulation of USA magazine soared during the period of rapid social change in the United States. Hundreds of thousands of American workers moved to the cities in search of industrial jobs, and millions of immigrants flooded into the country. This transformation transformed the nation that newspaper writers had long written about. With increased readership, newspaper reporters felt increasingly dissatisfied with their limited scope. As a result, magazine writers took up topics that newspapers often eschewed, including labor conflicts, race relations, and corruption in big business.
Historically, obtaining reliable figures about magazine circulation has been a challenge for periodical scholars. The Circulation of USA magazine project seeks to remedy this problem by making historical magazine circulation data publicly available, as well as using case studies across the different categories of magazines. The detailed ABC data will challenge long-held notions about U.S. magazine history, and can radically improve our understanding of the periodical industry. The publication of such detailed data will change the way scholars approach periodical history.
The US magazine industry continues to grow, with two of the biggest magazines in circulation being distributed exclusively to members of the American Association of Retired People (AAR). But the overall circulation of magazines has decreased over the past two years. While AARP and Vogue’s digital issue readership have grown, print subscriptions still account for the majority of large US magazines. Some publications, such as Better Homes And Gardens and Good Housekeeping, have only small percentages of their circulation in digital media.
Readership of USA magazine has consistently declined since its introduction in 1895. It has a circulation of 33 million and is distributed in major newspapers throughout the country. The target audience is roughly equal, with a median age of 50.7 years. The audience of USA Weekend is the same as that of USA magazine from the previous year, with 44 percent of men and 56 percent of women. Both publications are also distributed to members of the American Association of Retired Persons.
While print remains the most popular format, many U.S. consumers are engaging with magazine content on mobile web and through video. At the end of 2020, the mobile web audience of leading magazine brands would be nearly identical to the print audience. Publishers and consumer survey data indicate that magazine audiences are open to new formats and are willing to experiment. Readability of magazine content is a critical part of magazine marketing success. Ultimately, readership is the key to staying relevant in the age of digital media.
Editorials in newspapers and magazines present the opinion of the newspaper or magazine on a certain issue. Editorials reflect the consensus of the newspaper or magazine’s editorial board, a group of editors and business managers. Editorials are generally unsigned and aim to persuade readers to agree with the opinions expressed. Editorials should engage issues and resist the use of name-calling and other petty tactics of persuasion.
In the past, USA magazine political editorials have largely avoided controversial issues, but after a recent revamp, the paper has taken an active position on politics. Following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, USA Today called for tougher gun laws. The newspaper also heavily criticized the Republican Party during the 2013 government shutdown and the 2015 revolts in the United States House of Representatives. In addition, the magazine called out President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party for their inaction on various issues.
The USA magazine has expanded its book coverage in recent years. The Atlantic, founded in 1857, has long championed the work of generations of writers. In fact, the magazine didn’t publish Emily Dickinson until after her death, and it has published the stories of Kurt Vonnegut, Louise Erdrich, and James Baldwin. Its current book coverage includes the newest work by celebrated children’s author, David Mitchell.
People magazine was particularly popular during its heyday, as it featured a large number of evocatively named features. These included “You Meet Such Interesting People” and “Tips From the Publishers.” In later years, the magazine has become more staid, with fewer evocatively named features. Featured authors also made frequent cover appearances, and a bookstore column called “Shop Talk” was published twice a month.
In the year 2000, the Literary and Trade News section replaced the column. The section announced the death of George P. Putnam and the heirs of his business. The News Briefs section included short paragraphs that noted changes in the staff and the arrival of other books. The feature was a precursor to today’s “Week in Publishing.”

Until recently, the ABC had only released figures for its own titles. That was until a few years ago. Now, there are more sophisticated ways to calculate sales and to get a better overview of the entire industry. While many magazines continue to rely on the ABC’s figures, other publications have found it useful to compare sales figures of competing publications. The ABC has plans to upgrade its technology so that its figures are more accurate. The latest sales figures released by NatMags are not the most accurate because many competitors were still finalising their numbers.
NatMags treats titles as individual brands and measures them by their sales performance. Some titles, such as Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan, have been stagnant for a few years. Good Housekeeping, for example, saw its sales slump by 5.6 per cent in the past six months, but remains the queen of its sector. But the trend doesn’t seem to be waning in the magazine industry. Despite the challenges facing publishing, NatMags is proving its worth in the long run.
