The source provides the following information:
- Unless specified otherwise, figures include requests for both on-demand catch-up (streams and downloads), or views of live simulcasts. We cannot report download playback due to data privacy restrictions.
- All data is for the UK only and excludes listening outside the UK.
- This data includes requests via BBC iPlayer on any BBC website - whether on a programme, channel or station page, via the pop-out console, or on the BBC iPlayer website itself.
- This report does not include requests for web-only content (such as online news or sport coverage) - only requests for full-length programmes which have been transmitted on a TV channel or radio station.
- BBC iPlayer stats measurement was under-representing radio data up to mid-January 2013, when a problem was corrected.

Additional survey methodology can be found on page 9 of the report.
