Performing Arts Spending in Canada in 2001
April 1, 2004
This report examines in much greater detail the spending of Canadian households on live performing arts, which is one line item from the 2001 Survey of Household Spending. This Statistics Canada survey asked 16,901 Canadian households about their spending in 2001, including the following question regarding live performing arts: “In 2001, how much did your household spend on admissions to live performing arts, e.g., plays, concerts, festivals and dance performances?”. This question includes a broad range of performing arts activities, and should also include for-profit and non-profit performing arts options. Overall, Canadians spent about $824 million on live performing arts events in 2001, nearly double the spending on live sporting events ($451 million).
