This is double the increase registered by The Times, and outstrips any other title in the quality newspaper market.
The Independent's figures include a massive rise of 41.7 per cent in women readers, while readers in the 15-44 age group increased by 31 per cent.
Terry Grote, managing director of The Independent, said yesterday: "We are particularly pleased with these readership figures. They show the progress we are making, especially in attracting young readers, and women. The increases reflect the editorial success we have had over the past year, which has been recognised by a string of awards."
