    OVERVIEW
    Cultural and Creative Activity Satellite Accounts measure the economic contribution of activities connected with arts, media, heritage, design, fashion and information technology.

    PURPOSE
    The satellite accounts provide information to assist stakeholders to fully understand these segments of the economy and develop and monitor their industry plans and policies.

    SCOPE

'Cultural’ is generally used to describe activities which communicate symbolic meaning (e.g. beliefs, values, traditions), require human creativity as an input, and potentially contain intellectual property, whereas ‘creative’ generally refers to activities for which human creativity is a particularly significant input. These terms are often used to describe activities connected with the arts, media, heritage, design, fashion and information technology. The cultural and creative activity satellite accounts measure the economic contribution of this activity in four components:
1. activity in the industry supply chains for cultural and creative goods and services;
2. activity in other industries performed by workers in cultural and creative occupations;
3. volunteer services to cultural and creative institutions; and
4. non-market output of market producers in the cultural and/or creative industries.
