These estimates are based on ICv2 estimates of comic sales by Diamond North America during 2006. They are estimating actual sales by Diamond U.S. (primarily to North American comic stores), using Diamond's published sales indexes and publisher sales data to estimate a sales number for Batman (the anchor title Diamond uses in its calculations), and using that number and the indexes to estimate Diamond's sales on the remaining titles. They can check the accuracy of their numbers by comparing the Batman number that they calculate using multiple data points; their numbers for Batman are within 1/10 of 1% of each other, ensuring a high degree of accuracy. They do not include sales made by Diamond UK, orders on these titles placed after the end of September, or copies purchased by Diamond but held in inventory at the end of September.

Hellblazer is distributed to Europe by Diamond UK, which can account for significant sales for the publisher, ranging from 3-20% of the US numbers. Sales by Diamond UK are not included in the numbers above.
