        SRDS (Standard Rate & Data Service) periodicals offer
        your most reliable source. It is used mainly by the
        people who pay for circulation in "dollars-per-thousand"
        and who require that circulation figures be audited.

        The second most reliable source is the publishers'
        statement of ownership appearing each October. It
        is required and audited by the USPS.

        Best wishes,
