Report notes:

The Economist have changed the way they report their print and digital copies which affects year on year and period on period comparisons in this report. The print copies are now reported on a single certificate covering all editions.

For comparisons however, the report uses the previously published certificates for The Economist - Worldwide Sales Group. These included digital copies, and accounts for the apparent large differences. Economist digital copies are still reported but separately on a digital publications certificate.

The Economist shows their overall combined print and digital circulation on their ABC Worldwide Brand Report.
