You aren't going to find THAT data on the package.

I'd swear the weight of the individual sheets has changed also, even for two-ply, based on where you buy it. I buy TP at Wal-Mart normally, but when in need, same brand and ply, at Kroger. Different weight as in how thin the pulp was squeezed during processing, I guess.
Yes I do. It's also wrapped looser. Overall about a third less paper. That also goes for paper towels.

You can buy full size rolls from a wholesale distributor in case lots at about half supermarket prices. We use a lot of paper goods in the business.
