Notes:
Figures are in current dollars (i.e. not adjusted for inflation) and per calendar year. Each year is based on annual unpublished data accessed the following January and does not reflect any subsequent updates by the MPDAA. Figures may not total exactly due to rounding.
1. Comprises box office receipts where insufficient details were provided to allow allocation by state.
2. Data from one major distributor was not available at time of publication, so has been attributed to ‘Other’. The table will be revised should the data become available.
