Who Buys Books in Canada? A Statistical Analysis Based on Household Spending Data
March 1, 2005
This report provides a detailed analysis of Canadians who spend money on books and magazines. It looks at variations in book and magazine spending based on factors such as education, income, age, sex, the presence (or absence) of children in the household, household size, disability, and rural and urban households. Some provincial information is also available, including key statistics on performing arts spending in Ontario.
This report is part of the Statistical Insights on the Arts series by Hill Strategies Research. It is based on Statistics Canada’s Survey of Household Spending.
The Statistical Insights on the Arts series is funded by the Ontario Arts Council in partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts as part of our shared commitment to making arts research available to inform the work of Canada’s arts community and educate the general public about Canada’s arts sector.
