The results were taken for the six months ending Dec. 31, 2006.

Among the 260-plus U.S. consumer magazines that claimed rate base for 2006, Inc. magazine ranks first with the highest percentage increase in growth of single-copy newsstand sales.

Fast Company magazine ranks third, according to the FAS-FAX report.

For the six-month period, Inc. magazine had a total paid circulation base of 690,559 and saw its newsstand sales increase 47 percent over the same period in 2005, to an average of 21,386.

During the same period, Fast Company magazine had a total paid circulation rate base of 750,178 and saw its total newsstand copies increase 37 percent over the same period in 2005.
