 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Lack of data on the creative and cultural sectors (CCS)

The lack of data on the creative and cultural sectors (CCS) has been highlighted by representatives of international organisations, Member States and civil society organisations as one of the main obstacles to immediately supporting the CCS, which have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. This lack of data was already an issue prior to the pandemic. Nevertheless, the consequences of the problem are getting worse and will continue to get worse in the future. After all, accurate, adequate, comparable, monitored and updated information with a special focus on all the different sectors involved in the CCS from an official EU common point of reference is key to a) ensuring the best possible decision-making and policy design; b) boosting research and innovation; and c) forging a better future for the CCS and thus for EU society as a whole.

1. What measures does the Commission intend to take to data map the impact of COVID-19 on the CCS?

2. Will there be any measures for mapping the CCS with monitored and updated data in the long term, focusing also on the individual sectors involved?

3. Will the Commission begin procedures for the establishment of a CCS-focused department in Eurostat, as no such department exists at the moment?
