Principal statistics on culture and communications in Québec

June 18, 2009

Quebec (Quebec) Canada

In 2008, the four most-attended temporary exhibitions in large Québec museums were presented in Québec City. These results were taken from the 2009 edition of Statistiques principales de la culture et des communications au Québec, published today by the Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec (OCCQ) of the Institut de la statistique du Québec.

This publication paints a statistical portrait of the main activities in most of the fields of cultural activity in Québec, and of cultural spending and culture occupations. Regular readers of the publication will find the usual tables, updated and, in some cases, more detailed.

This edition contains data on trends in the sales of sound recordings (albums, digital titles, music dvds etc.) in Québec, between 2005 and 2008. Sales of digital albums purchased on the Internet accounted for 0.5% of album sales in 2005 and for 4.2% in 2008. In addition, during the same period, annual sales of digital titles purchased on the Internet saw an unquestionable increase, going from 708,200 to 4,108,200 titles.

Among the other data updated were statistics on performing arts, libraries, books, radio and TV stations, attendance of museum institutions, and government spending on culture. The publication also includes the top exhibitions of the large national museums, music albums, books and films.

To complete this statistical overview, the publication Statistiques principales de la culture et des communications au Québec is available on the website of the Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec.
