Creative Participation in Selected Cultural Activities

The National Centre for Cultural and Recreational Statistics (NCCRS) is currently developing a new survey to collect information about adult creative participation in selected cultural activities. At this stage we anticipate the survey will collect information about people aged 15 years and over regarding their 'hobby' participation. While the list of data items has not yet been finalised, we anticipate that we will be covering activities such as the performing arts, visual arts, writing and design.

This new survey will replace a previous survey 'work in selected cultural and leisure activities' and has been designed to fill an identified gap in our culture data. It is anticipated that the survey will go into the field in April 2010 with the data available December 2010. For more information please contact Jenny Dobak on (08) 8237 7317.
