Key figures for culture and recreation

The statistics show some of the cultural offerings, media and other activities that the Norwegian population spends its free time on. Gender breakdowns are given, and show, among other things, that men have more interest in sporting events than women. The figures provide the necessary information for those who are involved in running or financing cultural offerings.
