The role of culture in the economy fell further slightly, and its share of GDP was 2.9 per cent in 2014, whereas it was 3.0 per cent one year earlier. The falling tendency was visible in both production, consumption and particularly in employment. The significant exception was the games industry, which grew strongly in 2014 as well. Most of the activity of the games industry remains outside the limitations of the actual cultural satellite, but separate calculations have been made on the whole 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.
