Heavily subsidised activities (e.g. theatres, museums, concerts etc.) have, more or less, a stable number of visitors.

There is no accurate data on participation in activities that are not publicly subsidised (e.g. press, private or cable television etc.).

There have been no official surveys taken in recent years on the cultural activity of social groups differing with respect to gender, age or education. There are no special surveys monitoring the participation of national minority groups or immigrant groups in the cultural life of a community or the composition of the audience at multi-cultural festivals.

Nevertheless, it should be noted that Prof. Predrag Cveticanin from Nis, Serbia, conducted a research in 2007 on cultural needs and habits of citizens of Serbia and Macedonia which to a certain extend reflects cultural habits in selected fields and for certain parts of Macedonia.
