In 1955, Billboard magazine began publishing the Top 100 chart which combined three previously used charts (Best Sellers In Stores, Most Played by Jockeys and Most Played in Jukeboxes) -- those three charts continued to be published. In 1958, the "Hot 100" was first published. The year-end charts are based on a record's performance from the first week of December to the last week in November.
