This list was derived from our own web research and conversations with publishers, as well as a recent survey by the American Press Institute. Some details: The number of online subscribers is the most recent data we could find; it is not, however, necessarily up to date, although none of these statistics are more than seven months old. *The Newsday number, for instance, dates from late January. Circulation numbers, when available, are rounded to the nearest thousand. And when monthly subscription rates were not available, we either took the price of a weekly subscription and multiplied that by four or divided the price of a yearly subscription by 12.
