Arts in Daily Life:

Australian Participation in the Arts.



Results for States and Territories

Background

The Australia Council survey of Australian participation in the arts gives robust and detailed information on how Australians participate in the arts and their attitudes to the arts, to help the arts sector understand its audiences and policy makers understand its value to the public.



The research aims to:

- explore emerging attitudes and ways of engaging with the arts

- provide a sound base of evidence to lead and support a national conversation about arts and culture in Australia.

State and Territory art agencies were given the opportunity to financially partner with the Australia Council on the 2013 Arts Participation Survey. Arts NSW, Arts Victoria, Arts Queensland and the Department of Culture and the Arts, Western Australia (DCA WA) partnered, commissioning additional respondents in their state (booster sample), and an individual state report from the research contractor Instinct and Reason.

This report gives findings that include the booster samples of the partner states.



Methodology

The findings presented in this workbook are based on:

- surveys with 3004 Australians, representative by age, gender and location

- surveys with additional participants from New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia (booster samples).

Findings at the national level have been weighted by age, gender and location to be representative of Australia. As the booster samples were not representative of each state, findings for New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia have been weighted to be representative. Findings for South Australia, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory and Northern Territory are presented unweighted, in line with the 2010 research report More than Bums on Seats: Australian Participation in the Arts (reporting on the 2009 Arts Participation Survey).

National-level results are published in the research report Arts in Daily Life: Australian Participation in the Arts. For further information on the research methodology, please see the national report.



Comparisons

Findings have been compared for statistically significant changes over time, and to the national level. Differences that are not statistically significant should be read with caution as they may not indicate a true difference in the population. Findings for the Northern Territory and the ACT should also be read with caution due to the small sample sizes for these territories.

Statistically significant differences between 2009 and 2013 are highlighted in bold red.

Statistically significant differences between National and State proportions are highlighted by a red box.
