New Zealand Framework for Cultural Statistics

"In 1993, the Ministry of Cultural Affairs approached Statistics New Zealand to discuss strategies for improving the range and quality of statistical information available on New Zealand's cultural sector. With its responsibility for collecting statistics relevant to the needs of government, business and the community, Statistics New Zealand agreed that improvement was needed. In order to define what was meant by 'cultural statistics' and to provide direction for future work, it was agreed that the first priority should be the production of a framework for cultural statistics.
