This project, CULTURAbase, is a database with cultural statistics series accessible on the internet, which includes most of the statistical, numerical and methodological information that the Ministry produces, systematises or disseminates. It is a cultural statistics storage and dissemination system similar to the one currently used by the National Statistics Institute.
Its aim is to provide a new statistical data dissemination channel, offering a useful, fast tool for obtaining additional information, establishing a made-to-order digital publication system, without limitations to the amount of data offered and without forgoing tables structured into the most common components for a statistics publication table.
CULTURAbase joins the statistics dissemination methods currently available in the department, providing a complementary dissemination feature that seeks to take advantage of the benefits offered by the new dissemination technologies.
The Ministry would like to thank the different institutions that have provided the information necessary to complete this project for their excellent collaboration, and especially the National Statistics Institute for providing, free of charge, the software used in its implementation, without which it would have been impossible to fulfil one of the primary objectives of this project: to give users access to the statistical information with standardised information consultation tools.
