independent, in-depth social journalism for health

Croakey readership

Croakey launched as a standalone site in September 2015; before then we were hosted by Crikey.com.

We plan to update the readership figures each month, with cumulative figures from our launch in September 2015. Below are figures via Google Analytics. They include analytics for the website and, in more recent months, for Apple News. We have not yet started analysing and reporting our readership via FaceBook instant articles.
