Expenditure by category

Data on cultural expenditure are aligned, where possible, with the categories specified in the Industry Classification of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications, 2008 (Second Edition) (ACLC), (cat. no. 4902.0). This allows for division into Heritage and Arts with a further detailed division into 19 major categories.

The two categories with the highest expenditure funded by the Australian Government in 2011-12 were:

  • Radio and television services ($1,271.2m)
  • Other museums and cultural heritage ($248.8m).

The two categories with the highest expenditure funded by state and territory governments in 2011-12 were:
