Abstract

Este trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar los determinantes del consumo de libros y publicaciones periódicas en España. En concreto, se cuantifica la influencia que factores familiares, socioeconómicos y geográficos ejercen tanto sobre la decisión de compra de libros y publicaciones periódicas de los hogares españoles como sobre la cantidad gastada en los mismos. Entre otros efectos, los resultados muestran que variables relacionadas con la educación y la ocupación del sustentador principal, así como la renta del hogar y el lugar de residencia inciden sobre el consumo del hogar de los bienes analizados, en consonancia con la evidencia internacional y otros estudios españoles sobre la demanda de servicios culturales. In this paper we examine the determinants of the consumption of books and periodicals in Spain. We consider the effects of several factors, such as family, socio-economic and geographical environment, on household consumption of books and periodicals as well as on the amount spent. Among other effects, and in accordance with international and Spanish studies on cultural services, education and occupational status of main-wage earner, household income and place of residence are important determinants for book and periodicals demand.
