RAJAR is the company that compiles the radio industry's listening figures: and has all the data you need.

RAJAR is owned by the radio companies, and interviews around 100,000 people every year to get a full picture of radio listening. Here's how it all works.

The details, quickly

Want a quick overview of how a radio station's done? Search for a radio station like BBC Radio 2, and instantly see how many weekly listeners it has. Also, discover what kind of music the station plays, and more information including their website, Twitter and Facebook accounts: and who the key personnel are at the station. (Know of more? Edit them yourself.)

Historical figures in detail

Click through to see full detail of how a station has done. Every survey since 1999, in easy-to-read graph form with expert explanations of what the figures mean. Discover how long audiences listen, and whether the population in that station's surveyed area has increased. And, understand the station's market share. All our graphs are interactive, too: mouse-over (or click on mobile) to pinpoint exact figures.

Data for owners

Where owning companies are also in RAJAR - like the BBC or Global - we also have aggregate figures for them, too. Search for them in the usual way, and discover more about how they're doing.

The latest news and views

Our constantly updated UK radio news service has the latest press releases from broadcasters, as well as analysis from the press.

More than just RAJAR

You can also see the top charts for UK radio stations on Twitter and UK stations on TuneIn - and more data, too.
