"Who are Quebec's Writers?" provides a detailed sociological portrait of writers, based on a survey of 768 published writers in the province.
This Decima Research survey asked 2,603 Canadians 15 or older a series of questions about attendance at literary or poetry readings, something that has not been asked by other arts participation surveys in Canada.
These short fact sheets provide a limited analysis of the results of a book reading survey of 2,002 Canadians 18 or older.
