At the end of last year, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) published an English version of their satellite account focused on culture and media. The account was commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, and it outlines the contribution of culture and media to the Dutch economy for the year 2015. What is the contribution of culture and media to gross domestic product, employment and household consumption? Which goods and services take up key positions in the culture and media sector and which industries produce them? This first edition also includes detailed definitions of culture and media, as well as a description of the process of compiling a satellite account.
