Consumer ABCs: News & Current Affairs

The Economist UK remains Britain's most popular news and current affairs title, recording a steady 5.2% period-on-period increase and a nearly 8% increase year-on-year. The title has a circulation 267,300.

Meanwhile, Private Eye follows closely behind with a circulation figure of nearly 235,000 - however, it had a bad start to the year and reported a -4.8% PoP and -6% YoY decline.

Dennis Publishing Ltd's The Week also reported declines in the first half of 2018 - but much more substantial: -12.6% PoP and -12.3% YoY. Yet the title's youthful offshoot, The Week Junior, recorded the best growth figures in the market and was up 23.4% PoP and 29% YoY, reaching an impressive 59,300.

Elsewhere, Monocle reported stable figures, up 0.1% PoP and 3.5% YoY to nearly 84,400.
