The only source for such detailed magazine advertising spending data, PIB reports are used extensively throughout the publishing and advertising industries. Publishers use them to compile information on current and prospective advertisers, and to monitor advertising in competitors' magazines. Due to the timeliness and accuracy of their statistics, PIB reports provide indispensable information for a magazine's advertising sales staff. Advertisers and agencies find PIB to be a valuable research tool in analyzing competing brands and in making media plans and budget decisions.
PIB is administered by MPA/PIB, and an outside firm is contracted to measure, compile and publish the data for its reports.
