- Australian Bureau of Statistics 4183.0 Cultural Funding by Government, Australia 2012-13 (May 2014). Presents estimates of Australian public funding for arts and cultural activities, facilities and services by the Australian Government, state and territory governments and local governments.
- Kate MacNeill, Jenny Lye, Paul Caulfield, ‘Politics, reviews and support for the arts: an analysis of government expenditures on the arts in Australia from 1967 to 2009’, Australian Review of Public Affairs, 23 August 2013. This paper uses econometric modelling to examine the relationships between Australian federal government arts expenditure and the political persuasion of the government and government reviews of the arts and cultural sector. The research adds to a number of international studies that have examined cultural expenditures in the United States of America, Austria and in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation (OECD) and found little evidence that the political persuasion of the government had an impact on the level of cultural expenditures.
