Circulation Verification Council

CVCCirculation Verification Council (CVC) is an independent, third-party reporting audit company specializing in community newspapers, shoppers, niche publications and electronic editions. A CVC audit covers printing, distribution, circulation and readership studies, using the industry’s most thorough and accurate methodology.

Who is CVC?

As a reporting audit company, CVC doesn’t make the rules. We simply report the facts. Our stringent methodology and experienced staff ensure that the numbers we report offer a true picture of a publication, its readers and its market. These high standards benefit publishers and advertising decision makers alike.

Publishers find CVC to be a strategic business partner who provides valuable, objective information on their publications. Advertising decision makers know CVC is an impartial and trusted source for information on an ever-changing industry.

It’s About THE DATA

Without accurate information; a publication audit isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. That’s why CVC audits ensure that the most relevant, up-to-date data is always reflected in our reports. Since 1992, we’ve been applying the most thoroughly progressive standards to audit processes of a wide range of print publications. Everything we do is designed to ensure that our database is the most current and accurate in the industry.


Unlike many audit companies, CVC utilizes a three-tiered audit process that assures the accuracy, reliability and integrity of our results. Experienced CVC auditors, field audits in individual markets, phone surveys and extensive reviews of publication records combine to deliver dependable audit results.

A CVC audit is performed with a system of checks and balances that gives both publishers and advertising decisions makers a fair and honest look at the circulation and readership of individual publications across the country.
