The online public consultation for the preparation of the Cadastre was available between March 23 and April 13, 2020, a period in which 15,079 forms were completed nationwide; 13,147 individuals and 1,932 representatives of groups and organizations in the sector. Of these, around 98% state that they currently reside, and / or carry out activities in Chile. Based on its results, a report was prepared on the state of the situation of agents, creators, artists, workers and organizations, which will allow to reformulate the instruments and advance in the search for concrete solutions to the needs arising in the various areas. The specific objective is to serve as input for decision-making aimed at expanding and / or reformulating existing institutional instruments, targeting calls for competition for funds, and making available new forms of support to face this situation.
The largest participation came from the most populated regions of the country: Metropolitana (53.2%), Valparaiso (12.5%) and Biobio (4.9%). On the contrary, those with the lowest participation are Aysen (0.7%), Arica, and Parinacota (0.9%), and Antofagasta (1.2%).
