Default Counting the Nielsons? Where to buy?

Does anyone know a list of stores that, when making a disc purchase, is counted in the weekly nielson sales figures? Is Target and K-Mart included? Amazon? I am sure this had been brought up before, but I searched for the last half hour and finally decided to ask. I prefer to buy my blu rays where they are counted.

Thanks Venk....Since Warner is looking closely at figures this holiday and talk of them choosing a format, I prefer my purchases to be calculated, otherwise I always try and find the best deal, but for this holiday season I will shop at those stores. Do you know the location of the Nielsons thread? I can't find it.

They are in the sub forum "Sales and Data" in the HDDVD vs. BluRay Smackdown if I am not mistaken.
