ABC: The Times newspaper in biggest yearly growth for a decade

November figures from the Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC) show The Times is the only national quality newspaper to be in year-on-year growth for print sales.

Our print sale of 407,566 is the highest Times sale since the 2012 Olympics and represents a 4.7 per cent year-on-year growth.

This is The Times’s highest year-on-year increase since October 2005, the second month of year-on-year growth.

Our results outperform the total sector, which declined by 3 per cent. The Times’s share of the national quality market is at 13.7 per cent, the highest since November 2009.

John Witherow, Editor of The Times, said: “When big news breaks, people turn to the newspapers they trust. The Times was the only newspaper to carry the Paris terror attacks in its first edition and our thorough reporting and analysis of the Chancellor’s Spending Review are two major news events reflected in the November ABC figures.”
