In the study paper The Analysis of Local and Regional Culture (Analýza miestnej a regionálnej kultúry) (National Education Centre, 2007), it is stated that the absolute growth of expenditure invested in culture in the Slovak Republic, during the period of 1993 - 2006, gives evidence of a global trend - the support of culture from public sources. In order to calculate correct data on the real growth of expenditure invested in culture, it is necessary to correct the nominal growth by the inflation index during the monitored period. This corrected trend of real growth (calculated by the inflation index) is given in the following Table.
