All statistical material presented in these tables is based on selected data of the EU Adult Education Survey, carried out 2007 and published on 14 April 2011 by EUROSTAT in its Pocket Book Cultural Statistics 2011. During contacts with EUROSTAT, it was agreed that this information may provide some background for, and inspire discussions at, the Ghent conference on Active Cultural Participation, held in June 2011 in the context of the 10th Assembly of Compendium Experts. To prepare this meeting - which was held in cooperation with the Amateo Network -  the tables  were rearranged and abridged by the European Association of Cultural Researchers e.V. (ECURES).

3. Number of screens, cinema admissions and cinema admissions per capita (2005-2017)
