Tim Martin, General Manager – Media, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“Roy Morgan Research has always had readership figures for ‘last four weeks’ available to clients. However we believed a ‘last seven days’ figure is a more practical and accurate way to tally Australians’ news consumption habits across media brands—so this is what we have publically released.
“However, with EMMA (and publishers) claiming ‘higher’ readership figures by comparing their ‘last four weeks’ figures with our ’last seven days’ results, we thought it was time for publishers, agencies and advertisers to compare apples with apples.
“Our newspaper readership data is used by all mainstream media agency groups as well as leading client brands in financial services, automotive, telecommunications, consumer goods and retail.”
