Greeks are too Poor for Culture and Entertainment

FORGET
Forget plate-breaking and showering bouzouki singers with trays of flowers, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) released figures on Greek participation in culture and entertainment and showed that few Greeks can afford a good time. The results showed that in the last twelve months:

  • 32.8 percent of the population aged 16 years and over went to the cinema at least
    once during the last twelve months. 39.5 percent of the population did not go to the
    cinema, not even once, due to lack of interest, while 18.5 percent of the population
    could not afford going to the cinema, not even once.
    • 33.8 percent of the population went to live cultural performances (theater, dance
    performances, concerts, etc.) at least once during the last twelve months.
    37.8 percent of the population did not go to live cultural performances, not even
    once, due to lack of interest, while 22.2 percent of the population could not afford
    going to live cultural performances, not even once.
    • The smallest share of participation in cultural events is observed for visits to
    archaeological sites, amounting to 16.9 percent. 55.7 percent of the population did not visit any archaeological site or museum due to lack of interest and 16.3 percent of the
    population could not afford visiting any archaeological site or museum.
    • 26.9 percent of the population attended a live professional or amateur sport event at
    least once during the last twelve months. 53.7 percent of the population did not
    attend due to lack of interest and 14.8 percent of the population could not afford
    attending any live sport event.
    • Women participate more than men in cultural activities (the differences range
    from 1.8 percentage points as regards cinema to 3.0 percentage points as
    regards cultural performances). The only exception is the attendance to live
    sport events, where the participation share of men outnumbers that of women
    by 9.9 percentage points.
