The New York Times reported that its subscriptions have increased by double digits since last year, thanks in large part to digital packages and international offerings. Total average circulation, which includes digital as well as print, was 2, 134, 150 for Monday-Friday and 2, 502, 367 for Sunday. This represents a 12.4% increase in weekday subscriptions and a 4.6% gain for Sunday, as stated in a press release.

Over half the subscriptions are digital, and the digital segment increased 13.1% for weekday and 13.4% for Sunday. Print subscriptions declined 5.4% for weekday and 3.9% for Sunday.
