França. Ministère de la culture et de la communication. Département of Studies and Future Trends | Comissió de les Comunitats Europees.
Publisher: Luxembourg : European Comission, 2002Description: 56 p.Summary: The status of culture in the economy and in society is constantly changing. The growth of audiovisual technologies and the information society in general, the evolution of the leisure economy, the growing part played by culture in economic development and the role it is capable of playing in social cohesion mean that a better understanding is needed of the mechanisms and links between culture and economic and social development. Understanding these factors has become a major goal for the European Union, which has to create and implement a statistical system capable of describing and comparing national cultural situations. This is the approach taken by the LEG to cultural statistics in Europe and by the Eurostat task force which succeeded it. Harmonised national surveys such as the Labour Force Survey and the Household Budget Survey, plus the Time Use surveys carried out recently in several EU Member States, make it possible to acquire comparable initial data, assess their relevance to a knowledge of the cultural sector, and draw up recommendations for developing the culture-related aspects of these surveys. This study examines the processing of these three surveys and their methodological analysis from the point of view of the cultural sector, including the possibilities they offer for drawing up comparable statistics on employment and household consumption. The statistical results obtained and shown here can be produced on a regular basis after comparison with national data from other sources and a detailed examination of certain calculation methods. As things stand, these results are initial estimates drawn up for the purpose of methodological exploration. (Font: Summary)
