Incomes of the funds referred to in the previous paragraph are deduced from the budgets of their respective sectors. Per capita cultural spending is considered using information from the MoC budget and the A-V sector's expenditure budget. The population is calculated at 29.9 million, the total given by the most recent census (2004). According to the High Commission for Planning’s data (see Table 6.4), we calculate the standard annual population growth rate at 1.4%.

Table 6.4 reveals that the average annual per capita cultural expenditure during the last seven years is MD 26.87. Considering large projects aimed to strengthen the cultural infrastructure (i.e. expenditure through the Al-Hasan II Fund and the Deposit & Management Fund. See paragraph 6.3.4), average annual per capita cultural spending is likely to rise to about MD 28.62.
