VOLUME FOUR AVAILABLE

BookStats, a Joint Venture between the Book Industry Study Group (BISG) and the Association of American Publishers (AAP), provided the most comprehensive available view of the size and shape of the US book publishing industry, measured by publisher net unit and dollar sales.

This revolutionary data project carefully tracked transformational shifts in the sale of book content and provided US publisher net revenue and unit sales across three dimensions:

  • Formats: including physical (hardcover, softcover, audio, and mass market), non-physical (ebook, downloadable audio, Internet products and services, digital learning materials) and bundles
  • Categories: including trade fiction and nonfiction, juvenile, religious, higher education, K-12, professional, and scholarly books
  • Channels: including physical retail (chains, indies, college stores, mass retailers, and specialty), online retail, institutional sales, direct-to-consumer, jobbers & wholesalers, book fairs, and export sales

Extrapolated data for BookStats was derived through a transparent methodology which fully sized the complete US publishing industry and provided the best means for understanding the ebook growth rate from 2008-2013.
