In 2015, the share of culture in the economy was the same as in the year before, or 2.9 per cent of gross domestic product. In previous years, the tendency has been falling both in production and especially in employment, but this fall appears to have halted now at least for the time being. Although the share of culture in the economy is otherwise unchanged, the games industry grew strongly in 2015 as well. Most of the activity of the games industry remains outside the limitations of the actual culture satellite, but separate calculations have been made on the games industry for this release.

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.
