UIS: Release of the Measuring Cultural Participation handbook

Measuring Cultural Participation is the second in a series of handbooks produced by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS). Based on the 2009 Framework for Cultural Statistics, it presents current trends in measuring cultural participation.

The guide mainly focuses on quantitative approaches and presents an overview of data collection instruments from around the world. This edition also identifies best practices and a checklist of critical topics for designing future surveys.

The handbook is a key reference guide for organizations looking to measure cultural participation, especially with regard to its feasibility in developing countries.
