2) In 2004, the Federal level + Brussels Museum Council + Flanders have sent out together a questionnaire to 254 museums. 201 museums (response rate of 80%) have sent in answers, but only 162 questionnaires (response rate 63%)could be used for the survey.
3) 132 answers, 87 museums more than 200 days open
4) 100 answers, 97 more than 5.000 visits
5) - Permanent collections: 3,57.- euros - Temporary collections: 4,50.- euros

8) Data collected for 2004 by the Statistics Denmark Jan-March 2005. Statistical data in this questionnaire are collected from 258 museums. Of these 258 are 147 approved by the state and the rest are associated members of a county museum advisory board. Museums in Denmark are divided into four categories with regard to their main area of collecting: cultural history (including technological museums), art museums, museums of natural history and other. So, the numbers of museums in this questionnaire concerning the different categories are not comparable but adjusted to the purpose.
9) This category is not applicable; in Germany Science and technology museums are split from ethnology museums
