FYR of Macedonia/ 6.2 Public cultural expenditure  

6.2.1 Aggregated indicators

From 1995-2002, cultural expenditure represented 0.53% of the GDP. This figure represents a decrease from the periods 1993-96 (0.56%) and 1986 (0.61%).

The latest statistical data shows that the distribution of household expenditure for recreation and culture in 2008 was only 3.5% (3.8% in 2006 and 3.7% in 2004).

It is also interesting to note that there has been no direct foreign investment in the field of culture in the past ten years.

According to the estimated data, the growth rate of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the first quarter of 2015 was 3.2%.

In the first quarter of 2015, household final consumption, including Non-profit institutions serving households, increased by 1.6% in nominal terms compared to the same period of 2014, and its share in the GDP structure was 69.6%.
