Besides extracting household expenditure data relating to sports and physical recreation products, NCCRS conducted a similar exercise with regard to culture products and presented the data in a spreadsheet.

The average weekly household expenditure on culture products during 2003-04 was $36.39 which was 4.1% of the total average weekly expenditure on all products.

Other main features of the culture expenditure spreadsheet are as follows:

  • At $49.52 and $47.46 respectively, the estimates of weekly culture expenditure for the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory were appreciably higher than the estimates for the states. These ranged from $31.22 for Queensland to $39.76 for Victoria.
  • On average, Australian households spent $8.43 per week on Literature and a further $7.87 per week on Broadcasting, electronic media and film.
