It has a circulation of 301,779, and claims over 14 people view each copy. In recent years while many magazines have suffered in readership declines, Adweek noted Psychology Today's 36 percent increase in number of readers. From June 2010 to June 2011, it was the second top consumer magazine by newsstand sales.
