Fortune 500 Page Count, 1998-2011

Once again, this year's Fortune 500 printed issue is fatter than the previous year's issue, loaded with many more ads and articles than in 2010. I have the annual 500 issues going back to 1998 so I can compare the lists over time. Below is the page count, year by year.

2011: 316
2010: 308
2009: 276
2008: 356
2007: 386
2006: 384
2005: 410
2004: 478
2003: 410
2002: 402
2001: 474
2000: 630
1999: 510
1998: 506

Clearly, the size of the issue reflects the economic situation and, to some extent, the fortunes of the magazine business. Note that the peak for this period was 2000, when the issue had a whopping 630 pages.


Fortune now offers a Fortune 500 app, downloadable from its Web site.
