Supplementary notes

*The survey count only refers to respondents indicated as paid museum staff. The figure was calculated by Statista based on the following information provided by the source: "The survey closed on March 17, having collected 2,666 usable responses, mostly from people whose primary employment status (pre-pandemic) was as paid museum staff (87 percent), and also representing people who self-identify as independent professionals/consultants (seven percent), volunteers (four percent), students (three percent), and retirees (two percent). A small number of respondents opted to select more than one option which is why these numbers add up to 103 percent".
