Потребление культурных благ в России: что говорят опросные данные?

The paper examines dynamics in consumption of cultural goods in Russia. The sources of empirical data are the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS–HSE) for 2000–2018 and Rosstat’s Complex Living Conditions Survey (CLCS) for 2011–2018. The analysis indicates that now approximately every second household and approximately every second adult individual consumes some cultural goods during the year. A regular audience is approximately one fifth of the total. The share of expenses on cultural goods reaches 2.5% of average monthly household budget. With the rapid income growth in 2000–2018 demand for cultural goods has been steadily increasing. There is a visible empirical regularity: the higher the income of households or individuals, the more active they are culturally. There appears to be a fairly banal, but effective practical way to stimulate demand for cultural goods in Russia: an acceleration of economic growth.
