Presentation: The transition to digital methods of creating, producing and disseminating cultural works has radically changed the conditions surrounding their statistical measurement, calling into question the relevance of current statistics on culture. In this context, the Unesco Institute for Statistics and the Observatoire de la culture et des communications du Québec have partnered to bring together statistical experts and researchers in other fields, such as electronic commerce or copyright, from around the world in order to examine the issues, methods, practices and innovations surrounding the production of statistics on digital cultural products.
