Cultural Data Online is an initiative of the Meeting of Cultural Ministers Statistics Working Group, which manages a national program of cultural data collection, research and analysis, funded collaboratively by the Australian, state and territory governments through the Meeting of Cultural Ministers.

The Meeting of Cultural Ministers Statistics Working Group aims to improve policy and decision-making in cultural industries and government by enhancing the quality, range and availability of relevant cultural statistics.

On this page you will find statistical reports commissioned by the Statistics Working Group and links to statistical reports published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The Australian Government, on behalf of the Meeting of Cultural Ministers, has a Memorandum of Understanding with the ABS for collections of data related to Attendance and Participation and Cultural Funding by Government.
