Employment in the Cultural Sector 2005

Statistics New Zealand and Ministry for Culture and Heritage, Wellington, 2005, 105 pp., ISBN 0-478-26961-7

Employment in the Cultural Sector 2005 is part of a programme of cultural statistics undertaken jointly by the Ministry for Culture and Heritage and Statistics New Zealand.

This initiative began with the publication of the New Zealand Framework for Cultural Statistics Te Anga Tatauranga Tikanga--iwi o Aotearoa in 1995, which established a classification system of occupations and industries in the cultural sector. The framework has prompted a range of reports about the cultural sector, including topics such as household spending, government expenditure, and time spent on cultural activities.

The report shows changes in the levels and distribution of employment in the cultural sector, highlighting the rapid growth and diversity within this sector. It covers employment in taonga tuku iho (the traditional Maori culture), heritage, library services, literature, performing arts, visual arts, film and video, broadcasting, and community and government activity. Demographics such as age, ethnicity, income, gender and education within each group are also examined. Researchers and readers who have an interest in specific aspects of employment in the cultural sector will be able to compare their area of interest with other types of cultural employment.
