What Canadian households spend on culture goods and services

After adjusting for inflation, average spending on culture products remained basically unchanged between 1999 and 2004. Even so, culture products represented a smaller percentage of total household expenditures in 2004 than in 1999. Using data from the Survey of Household Spending (SHS), this article explores household spending on culture goods and services over a five year period, from 1999 to 2004, and examines differences in average spending by household type.
