Available in EASY: poetry

1 February 2021

Thursday 28 January marks the start of Poetry Week 2021. Initiated by Poetry International, the last week of January in the Netherlands and Flanders is traditionally devoted to poetry. Via EASY, data about poetry can be found and reused.

Via EASY, the dataset “Over lezen gesproken 1990: Sociale differentiatie in leesgedrag” is available. The file contains data on the reading behaviour of Dutch people in the early 1990s. The reading of poetry is also included in this dataset. 

The data shows, among other things, the reading behaviour, the frequency and the type of reading. In addition, there is information about the Dutch population’s knowledge of literature and poetry. The availability of data on background variables ensures that the information can be compared to different population groups.
