PA statistics yearbook 2011


The PA will be publishing its PA statistics yearbook 2011 on 2 May 2012. This yearbook covers UK publishers’ sales (home and export) by broad sector from 2007 to 2011 inclusive as well as estimates for the UK book market size for this period.

With each year, the PA extends its coverage of statistics within the yearbook to provide as complete a picture as possible of the publishing landscape. So this year’s edition will include digital sales by sector over five years, sector highlights, and new section on publishers’ “other income". The complete list of contents is available below.

For non-members, it is now possible to purchase individuals sections as well as the full yearbook (full yearbook online order form now available through the PA bookshop). Each section will include the highlights for the industry as a whole, the preface by the PA's Chief Executive Richard Mollet, and the technical appendix automatically, whereas the other appendices will be included according to the section purchased.  For further information please download the flyer below.
