Statistics and Culture

"Culture is the sum of all the forms of art, of love and of thought, which, in the course of centuries, have enabled man to be less enslaved" dixit André Malraux[1]

This page will supply some databases related to culture. From these data, it will be possible to make statistical treatments to establish by countries, regions, or continents, typical profiles of the degree of culture of populations. But before, an overview of most representative indicators of culture seems to be necessary.
First of all, culture is a learning which depends on the curiosity and attention of each. That's why, to determine the culture degree of a society we can use indicators like the number of newspapers which are available in a country. Likewise the number of borrowings made in a library is a way to see if a population cultivate its cultural interest. We can also measure it thanks to the number of cinema's seats, or the book production by countries that represented another way of culture. In a similar manner, databases about number of newspapers and periodicals are interesting too. Furthermore since a few years, we can't speak about culture without mentioning internet because it really became an important media source. It's why that can be interesting to search databases about internet subscribers. It will give you an idea of its availability of access and moreover if a population have an access to internet it have an access to an impressive source of information about a wide number of subjects. Finally, to estimate how much a population care about culture we can also study the overall structure of consumption expenditure by detailed COICOP level (per thousands). Thanks to those data it will be possible to estimate interest degree in culture because if an household spend a part of its income in culture, it may be because it thinks that it's important.
Moreover statistics bound to the publishing sector are also a good summary of the importance of cultural media in a society. Readers can access the OECD Structural and Demographic Business Statistics (SDBS) database and publication choosing from the following options : Subscribers and readers at subscribing institutions can access the online database via SourceOECD, our online library now.
