Abstract

This paper analyzes the time that consumers dedicate to a range of cultural goods (cinema, theatre, museums, and spectator sports) by estimating a SUR model with information from the Spanish Time Use Survey for 2009-2010. Thus, we bridge the gap in the literature of consumption that has omitted the determinants of the time adults spend on cultural goods. Our main results indicate that age influences the time spent going to cinemas and art exhibitions/museums in different ways. Older individuals spend less time going to cinemas, while younger individuals are less frequent visitors to art galleries and museums, and men spend more time than women at sporting events. A university level of education influences the time dedicated to these four activities in a positive and statistically significant manner, and larger families positively influence the time dedicated to attending sporting events.
