This document is a result of the ESSnet-culture project (European Statistical System Network on Culture coordinated by the Luxembourgish Ministry of Culture) co-financed by the European Commission. The European framework for cultural statistics was drawn up in 2000 with the aim of strengthening statistical knowledge on culture and the comparability of cultural data across the European Union. The ESSnet-culture has developed an updated framework taking into account the 2009 UNESCO Framework for Cultural Statistics. The final report presents the results of two-years work done by four task forces, which covered framework and definitions; financing and expenditure; cultural industries; and cultural practices and social aspects of culture. The report proposes the ground for an international model for harmonised international statistics on culture reflecting on recent phenomena of creativity and the development of creative industries, on the measurement of new cultural habits and practices, and on the transformations in the cultural economy due to digitisation.
