In the time series based on new calculations the share of culture in the economy in 2017 has decreased slightly compared to 2016, that is the share in GDP was 3.4 per cent (3.5 per cent in 2016). The latest cultural satellite calculations take into account both the time series revision made in national accounts and the industry change of some games industry enterprises. Adding the games industry to the calculation affected the results so that the previous continuously falling trend has actually been growing in recent years and only in 2017 has the share of culture in the economy, both measured by output and value added, made a downturn. The share of culture of the employed has decreased constantly and as a result of the new calculations the share of the employed has decreased more than the share of output and value added in recent years.

Description: Culture Satellite Accounts are a statistical system which aims at describing the economic contribution of culture. So far, there is no internationally agreed on method for producing culture satellite, but the culture satellite compiled in Finland largely follows the same methods that are used in Travel and Tourism Satellite Accounts, which have been developed in international co-operation. Culture Satellite Accounts have been compiled in different countries, and the actual method is mostly similar but, for instance, the industry selection varies between different countries so the results from different countries are not directly comparable. Culture Satellite Accounts are also called culture satellite.
