“Cultural Information Systems and Cultural Indicators: The Experience of Mexico” (Abstract),  by Andrés Roemer & Alfonso Castellanos, Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes - Conaculta, México.

Mexico characterizes for its cultural diversity. In the present globalization context, Mexico’scultural development is based on the variety of cultures living, interacting and developingin its territory, and the richness of forms through which these cultures express themselves.The Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (CONACULTA) is the national governmentagency responsible for cultural policy. As part of a new model for public administrationin this sector CONACULTA recognizes the importance of cultural statistics and indicators.In this context, there has been an effort to develop a system of cultural statistics andindicators that are relevant with the purpose of formulating, reporting and evaluating theeffectiveness of cultural policies based on five principles: freedom of expression and creation,afirmation of cultural diversity, equality of access to cultural goods and services, socialparticipation in cultural policy, federalism and regionally balanced cultural development.The paper deals mainly with describing what has been accomplished so far in this directionand the perspectives in the near future, taking into account the importance of developinga common international framework for these projects.
