VOLUME FOUR (CONTAINING 2013 DATA) IS THE FINAL VOLUME IN THE BOOKSTATS SERIES

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 for 2008-2013 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
