Linux Journal Demographics
Do you ever wonder who else reads Linux Journal? “No” you say? All your best friends and buddies already have their two-year subscriptions? All those friends live not necessarily in your neighborhood, but all over out there in Internet-land?
Well, we know that at least a few of you are curious about those other folks. (And besides, it's a chance for us to put some colorful pie charts on this page and dazzle you with statistics!)
The distribution of Linux Journal as of the October Buyer's Guide issue was 30,000. Our readers include subscription-holders as well as those who buy the magazine in bookstores and other retail outlets.
Of our subscription-holders, 70 percent are in the United States, and 30 percent are non-US. Inside the U.S., most magazines get sent to the famous area of the country known as “other”. Our next-largest subscribership is the state of California with 17 percent. Washington state has a large percentage because we threaten all of our friends to help keep us employed! We had to put Washington D.C. on the chart because people are always getting us mixed up with them.
The non-North America pie shows Great Britian, Germany, and Asia each at approximately 17%. Australia and New Zealand have a surprising 7 percent. Miscellaneous Europe lets us know that there are plenty of people in the Netherlands to go to the International Linux Symposium which will be held in Amsterdam in December. (See related story in the Linux Events section, page 10.) Their 14 percent is second only to France's 22 percent.
So, we hope that this gives you a little better picture of the demographics of Linux Journal subscribers. Oh, and don't forget to get an extra subscription for your Mom for her next birthday.
