Who We Are

The MACPA readers “mirror” the markets they live in as can be seen by the statistics collected by Circulations Verification Council.

• Age : Strength of readership is in the 25-74 year old categories. Readers tend to begin to read our publications when they consider: buying a car, getting married, buying houses, and having children. Our publications draw young people into community interest also into reading free community papers.

• Income: Strength of readership is in the $25,000-$99,000 household income categories. Slight losses in readership appear in $100M-$150M with true looses in readership in the under $25M and over $150M categories.

• Educational Attainment: Strength of readership is in the high school to four-year degree educational attainment segments with measurable losses in less than high school attainment and slight losses in post graduate degree attainment.
