Holland has a high number of creative people

The Netherlands has a high number of people working as artists and writers compared with its total working population, the EU statistics agency Eurostat said on Thursday.

The country has 110,000 artists and writers or 1.3% of the working population. This puts it in fifth place behind the much larger member states Germany (330,000), Britain (200,000), France (180,000) and Italy (120,000).
Romania has the fewest artists and writers. They account for just 0.1% of the population.
