Barcelona Cultura

Barcelona in data 2023

In this section, you’ll find a set of indicators with information on each of the city’s cultural sectors. It provides a synthetic and, consequently, partial view of Barcelona’s cultural life, but it is nonetheless a tool that allows for analysis, exchange and discussion.

We start by providing some general data to contextualise Barcelona’s cultural reality in terms of its size and the characteristics that are unique to this city. In this sense, information on, for example, the city’s surface area or population or the educational level, unemployment rate or average wage of its inhabitants are some of the indicators that are needed to make comparisons with other cities.

In addition to this contextual data, we also include different indicators that summarise each of the cultural spheres, a number of which are developed in greater depth in the website’s various sections.
