As the definitive source for comprehensive audio metrics and insights, Nielsen measures listeners however they tune in.
Given the broad scope of the audio landscape, Nielsen approaches audio measurement from two distinct perspectives: radio tune-in and song play. Nielsen Audio measures how consumers are listening to the radio, whether it be via traditional radio stations, streaming or podcast. Nielsen Music measures song play, both on traditional radio stations and online.
