Statistics & Comparisons

The Compendium statistics section is part of a collective effort by the Compendium editors and experts to advance the linkages between policy making and comparative research. The data provided is derived from the country profiles and external sources such as Eurostat and OECD. You will find tables devoted to data on population, cultural markets, cultural employment and cultural funding.

Despite our best efforts to keep the tables continuously updated, currently this section is still a work in progress.
