La lettura di libri in Italia

Book-reading habits in Italy

Every year the survey on “Aspects of daily life” gathers information about leisure-time book reading.

The term ‘readers’ refers to people aged 6 and over who have read at least one book not strictly for work or study reasons during the 12 months prior to the interview.

The information presented today is taken from the survey conducted in February 2009 and regards book reading and the contents of home libraries.

The sample included 19,000 households, representing a total of 48,000 individuals. For further information see the methodological note available in download.
