Non-broadcast subscription to RAJAR

Media Agencies/Owners, PR companies and members of the public interested in receiving more detailed data than that currently shown under Listening Figures on the RAJAR site will need a paid subscription. There are 3 levels of subscription as follows:

1. Website

Subscriber data available on the RAJAR website comprises:-

  • Quarterly Listening Analysis

    The subscriber functionality allows users to sort stations according to their performance against specified target groups, look at a detailed audience profile for a station or to track listening of a selected audience through the day.

  • Volumes

    These are standard tables showing results in a pre-formatted way for each participating commercial radio station or group, as well as the BBC Networks.

  • Mapping for all Stations (BBC and Commercial)

    Users have the functionality to overlay TSA’s, and zoom to national level.

  • Quarter Hour Report

    Subscribers can also look at more detailed audience listening by quarter hour.

The free top line station results (Quarterly Summary) are available from 00.01 am on Data Release day.

2. Planning Systems

Access to RAJAR data via a Bureau planning system gives full access to the respondent level database and offers flexibility of analysis to the subscriber, giving access to results not covered by the Volumes tables with a website subscription.

Data analysis software developers that allow the loading of RAJAR data are commonly referred to as the RAJAR Bureaux. For a list of RAJAR licenced bureaux, please click here.

When RAJAR data is taken via a bureau, a Planning system subscription fee must be taken out with RAJAR prior to request for data. A software licence fee is also payable to the bureau direct, in addition to the RAJAR planning subscription. Please make contact with the bureaux to discuss software licence costs.

A trial demonstration of software and RAJAR data can be arranged through a bureau. Please contact them direct to organise.

Multi User Discount Ratecard

If you are a media agency, and part of a group of companies who would like to take RAJAR data we offer a discounted ratecard. To obtain the discount ratecard, and details of how to subscribe, please contact RAJAR for details.

3. ‘Radio Audience Book’

The Radio Audience Book contains a summary of results broken down by 20 demographics for all participating commercial station / group, BBC Networks and RAJAR regions.

Any queries should be directed to subs@rajar.co.uk or you can phone 020 7395 0630

Subscription Process

You need to complete a subscription form which is available in the download box. If you want to take a multi user subscription, a form must be completed for each company in the group joining the scheme. You can either post, e mail for fax the form to RAJAR. On receipt of the form we will issue a VAT invoice.

Unfortunately access to RAJAR data is not given until payment in full is received. RAJAR data is copyright and owned by the stations on the survey so we are unable to provide date free of charge on request.

The subscription year runs from May to April in line with our quarterly data release. You can subscribe at any point during the year however no discount is given for website or planning system subscribers who join midyear.

How to pay

Fees are payable in full by cheque or bank transfer when you take out the subscription. Please contact RAJAR for bank details if you wish to make payment by transfer.

Purchase order numbers supplied will be incorporated on the invoice.

Publication Code

Subscribers shall comply with the publication rules which cover the use and publication of RAJAR data.
