I'm trying to compile some subscription + circulation numbers for Dragon and Dungeon magazine. So far, with a search of pazio website I turned up the following:

dragon
Year Year Subscribers Paid Circulation
1977...............1164

1982.............19029...................60387

1984 (high)......36974................118000
1985.......................................107200
1992...............23685

1999...............13224.................31056

2004...............18851
2005........................................62725
Dungeon
Jan-07......................................32391



Anyone have any additional numbers that I can add? Apparently they publish them once a year. I actually haven't found them in any of the limited number of issues I have.

Somewhere in the last year we had a thread where people compiled numbers for all the years. There was some little skeptocism that the numbers weren't inflated in some years.

If you have the CD archive of issues 1-250 you might be able to find annual statements there...
Yeah, every year magazines print a pub statement that includes their circulation. They include it in an issue of the magazine. If you can figure out which month they usually print it, you just need to find those issues and you'll have all the info you need.

Thanks Delta. I manage to dig up that old thread.

All collected below. Keep in mind that Erik Mona tells us that circulation under TSR is likely quite inflated. The data is mostly thanks to Erik Mona and MerricB
