The questionnaire administration was made via the CATI method, and the structure of the sample included: gender, age, education level, size of locality (towns with 200 thousand inhabitants, towns between 100 and 200 thousand inhabitants, towns between 30 and 100 thousand inhabitants, towns under 30 thousand inhabitants, communes) and development sub-regions.
The first edition of the study Trends in the cultural consumption during the pandemic presents the respondents’ intention to spend their spare-time in the public space in the period July-December 2020, as well as comparisons to the level recorded in 2019. Furthermore, the study is focused on the identification of non-public cultural consumption practices during the isolation period and it approaches the matter of digital gaps. A special attention was paid to the consumption of radio and TV programmes, as well as to the differences recorded for this type of consumption as compared to the period prior to the start of the pandemic.
