El objetivo de este artículo es establecer un marco analítico riguroso que permita determinar la dimensión e importancia económica de la industria de la cultura y el ocio, con el fin de situarla en el lugar prominente que ha alcanzado como sector estratégico en la estructura productiva de España. Se pretende evaluar la contribución que esta industria realiza a la riqueza nacional, destacando su creciente relevancia en términos de PIBpm y empleo, así como profundizar en estos agregados desde una triple vertiente: nacional, regional y sectorial. Los resultados de este artículo muestran que en 2003 la industria representa un 3,9% del PIBpm y un 7,8% del empleo. Se observa una alta concentración de la industria tanto desde el punto de vista regional como sectorial.

Our results show that the industry represents 3.9% of GDPmp and a 7.8% of employment. The results show that the industry is also highly concentrated in its regional and sectoral dimensions.
