Cultural consumption surveys, one of the Taipei City Cultural Indicators, are designed to understand the consumption and participation of Taipei citizens above 15 years old in activities related to mass communication, visual arts, performing arts, cultural and arts institutions and facilities, cultural and folklore festivals, and travel and tourism. This survey was carried out in 2013 with 2,002 valid samples collected. The present study uses stratified random sampling to conduct computer-assisted telephone interviews on Taipei citizens above age 15 with a confidence level of 95%. The results of the analysis indicate a general decline in Taipei citizens’ cultural participation. Since cultural participation and cultural consumption are very much affected by the political environment, economic climate, social situation and technological development, long-term observation and analysis of cultural consumption patterns is required.
