According to a recent bulletin from MagNet (the U.S.-based data provider), newsstand sales in terms of copies sold in the U.S. were down 11.5% in the second quarter of 2011 compared to 2010.  Newsstand revenues in the U.S. are down 9.4%.  Cumulatively, year to date, units are down 10.9% and revenues are off 8.7%.

In Canada, units are down 7.6% for the second quarter, while revenues are down 7%.  Cumulatively, year to date, units are off 6.7% and revenues are down 5.5%.

Here’s hoping the second half brings better news.
