The Economist is nearing 1 million digital subscribers, reports Andrew Kearsley of Press Gazette.

Kearsley reports, “The newest data suggests the magazine is now just under 5,000 digital subscriptions away from the one million total after recording a 14%  increase in global digital circulation last year, from 874,802 to 995,228.

“The title account for nearly half of all digital magazine subscriptions audited by ABC in the UK.

“The Economist was an early adopter of digital subscriptions, introducing paywalls that prevented non-subscribers from accessing its archived editorial content in 2009. It reports in its latest ABC audit that its entire digital circulation was made up of paid subscribers.

“The title with the next highest digital edition sales in 2021, according to ABC, was Time Magazine’s EMEA editon with an average of 37,741 sales per week.”
