Condé Nast’s ad-page numbers are in, and they explain why the company has had such a rough 2009.

Ad pages fell by 49.9 percent at Architectural Digest, part of an estimated total loss of 8,359 ad pages at Condé Nast monthlies in 2009.

The company lost 8,359 ad pages at its monthly magazines, according to estimates it released Wednesday. That is a 31.6 percent drop from last year.

The worst hit were Architectural Digest, where ad pages fell 49.9 percent; W, where ad pages fell 46 percent; and Condé Nast Traveler, where pages fell 41.1 percent. Details and Wired both fell about 39 percent.

Some magazines showed improving numbers toward the end of the year. Traveler dropped only 5.4 percent from last year’s December issue, and Lucky 8.8 percent. Glamour actually rose 6.6 percent.
