This publication provides an overview of the methodology used in the different areas of Eurostat culture statistics available from harmonised EU data collections.
These statistics cover areas such as cultural employment, enterprises in cultural sectors, international trade in cultural goods and services, cultural participation, households’ cultural expenditure, etc. They are publicly available in Eurostat’s database (Eurobase) and analysed in several Statistics explained articles and Eurostat ‘culture statistics’ pocketbooks (the third edition of which was published in 2016).
The methodology used in compiling the statistics is based on the ESSnet-Culture final report, which was published in 2012. Since then, slight adjustments have been made to the statistical scope of ‘culture’ and more EU harmonised surveys have been searched for culture-related data.
The aim of this guide is to summarise the methodology used for culture statistics, as applied in 2018. The definitions and methods presented here refer primarily to the general methodology used for the various EU surveys, but some (e.g. lists of ‘cultural codes’ in different classifications, a matrix used for cultural employment and cultural aggregates compiled in several data collections) are specific to culture statistics.

The tables in this publication present government finance statistics (GFS) data by Member State, for the EU-28, for the euro area and for Iceland, Norway and Switzerland.

It gives a clear picture of the links between these data. The publication is intended primarily for national governments, Central Banks, economic analysts and academics with an interest in government finance, although it could also be of interest to the wider public. The value-added in comparison with other publications is to give an overview of government finances from several angles with consistent information. The publication covers data since 1995. [+]
The purpose of this paper is to present the reference methodology for the calculation of the circular material use rate indicator. The circular economy aims at increasing the amount of material recovered and fed back into the economy, therefore reducing the generation of waste and limiting the extraction of primary raw materials. The circular material use rate measures the share of material recovered and fed back into the economy - thus saving extraction of primary raw materials - in overall material use. The European Commission has released a framework to monitor progress towards the circular economy. This indicator is part of that monitoring framework and is used to monitor the progress towards a circular economy on the thematic area of 'secondary raw materials'. [+]
