Weekday circulation of the New York Times from 2000 to 2018

Average paid and verified weekday circulation* of the New York Times from 2000 to 2018 (in 1,000 copies)

by Amy Watson, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Weekday circulation of the New York Times from 2000 to 2018 In 2018, the average weekday circulation of the New York Times was 487 thousand copies. This marks a significant drop from over 1.03 million a decade earlier and continues the downward trend which has been evident for the last few years.
The New York Times

The New York Times was founded in 1851 and has been a household name in the United States for decades. The newspaper has adapted well to changes in the media industry, and between the first quarters of 2014 and 2019, paid subscribers to the New York Times’ digital only news product increased from 799 thousand to almost 2.86 million. The New York Times is also one of the world’s leading podcast publishers, with unique streams and downloads of the company’s podcasts frequently surpassing 50 million per month.

As one of the most popular news websites in the United States, the NYT has been known to achieve 70 million unique monthly visitors, outperforming the likes of NBC News, The Washington Post and The Guardian. That said, like many news publications, the New York Times has been included in ongoing debates about whether or not its content can be trusted. A 2018 survey on the trustworthiness of the New York Times showed that more respondents considered the publication very or somewhat trustworthy than those who felt the opposite, although the majority of surveyed adults had a neutral opinion on the matter. Whilst the NYT is not as divisive as some, the publication of Donald Trump’s tax returns by the newspaper in 2019 was considered controversial.
