This week, the Eurobarometer has published a new report on “Cultural access and participation”.
While trying to figure out some of the important findings of this report, I tried to compare between the different countries, one of the reasons EU citizens consume less cultural products: lack of money.
Below are my comparisons from the data given by the Eurobarometer service per country. I have focused on question “2. BARRIERS TO ACCESSING CULTURE” and in particular, on the answer “Too expensive” given for not being involved in specific cultural activities. The results are interesting yet rather expected considering the devastating results of the economic crisis on the European societies.
As it turns out, cultural consumption is “Too expensive” for most of the activities for Greeks, Hungarians, Spanish and Portuguese among other Europeans. See the results below.
