|This issue, published in
2003, includes two research articles. The first considers the impact of free
entrance in national museums and galleries in England. It reports on the results of a survey
which investigated the increase of visitors; in fact, the increase is
greatest among those groups who have traditionally always gone to museums,
while the increase among socially disadvantaged groups is much lower.
The second investigates how valuable data collection and data analysis concerning the English cultural sector has been so far. Selwood argues that data gathering has been a rather spurious exercise which says more about policy intentions than about actual impact.
