Liechtenstein does not yet collect data on cultural participation. There are few absolute figures and no percentages of how many people have participated in or attended cultural activities in the last three years or in the past 12 months. Nor are there any surveys on how much time people in the country spent at the cinema, reading books, listening to music, on the internet or computer, listening to the radio, watching videos or TV. According to the Statistics Office, the number of visitors to the Liechtenstein National Museum increased from 100,468 to 118,800 between 2017 and 2019, while the number of visitors to the Liechtenstein Art Museum decreased from 22,317 to 21,396. Utilisation of the Liechtenstein National Library has increased significantly between 2017 and 2019: while checkouts of books, magazines, audiovisual and digital media totalled 198,041 in 2017, the number increased to 234,130 in 2019.
No figures are available for Liechtenstein either on how many people engage in artistic activities, how many people write, paint, take photographs, produce videos and websites, act in theatre, dance or play an instrument. Approximate absolute membership figures are only available for wind orchestras (450) and choirs (1,000).
