JICREG newspaper readership data are generated by applying readers per copy (RPC) figures to circulation breakdowns at postcode sector level. The RPC figures are generated from readership research, undertaken to strict JICREG guidelines, or by using JICREG models.
These models have been developed from commissioning titles' research and appropriate demographic factors and are regularly updated to ensure that they continue to reflect current research findings.

JICREG local paper website audience data are generated by applying adults per browser (APB) figures to the latest average monthly unique browser figures.  The APB figures are generated from audience research, undertaken to JICREG guidelines, or by using JICREG models.
These models have been developed based on extensive research undertaken by a selection of publishers, and have been independently and successfully appraised. 

JICREG uses the JICPOPS annually updated population and household total and postcode sector lists.

JICREG data are complex, with hundreds of separate fields on around 700 titles and over 450 websites. The Newspaper Society databases provides the source of basic newspaper information used by JICREG and a sophisticated electronic questionnaire system has been developed for checking data that publishers supply for inclusion.

JICREG data are released twice a year and the release dates for 2014 are approximately 28 April, and 27 October.  Updated JICREG National data are released at the same time as the April update.

JICREG newspaper readership data has recently been extended to include free pick-up copies.  Paid for papers with some pick-up copies are given the type code V.  Free door-to-door papers with some pick-up copies are given the type code W. 

JICREG Nationals

JICREG Nationals enables national newspaper readership data to be incorporated into Jic-in-a-box, so that the readership of all daily and Sunday national newspapers can be established for any area created
within the Jic-in-a-box system, including pre-set areas, drive time areas, and user defined catchment areas.  JICREG Nationals has recently been further developed to enable readership to be established within a wider range of demographics.

Data can also be transferred into schedule analysis software enabling net reach and frequency of schedules including both national and regional newspapers to be established within any area.  This works with all schedule analysis software including Telmar, IMS, and BMRB Choices.

This means that the performance of any national press schedule can be analysed regionally and the additional coverage achieved by including key regional newspapers demonstrated. 

In order to subscribe to JICREG Nationals, companies have to be current subscribers to Jic-in-a-box and the National Readership Survey.
