Performing Arts Attendance in Canada and the Provinces

January 1, 2003

This report examines the attendance of Canadians at theatre, symphony, opera, choral music, popular music and dance performances (excluding festivals). The data is drawn from Statistics Canada’s 1992 and 1998 General Social Survey, in-depth telephone surveys of Canadians 15 years of age or older.

The paper summarizes data on individuals who attended performing arts events during the survey year, not total attendance at these events. Individuals who attended more than one event are included only once.
Available upon request.
