This study investigates to what extent discontinuity between resident demand and willingness to pay taxes exists by categorizing the respondents as three groups: traditionalists, philanthropists and free-riders. The extensive survey was conducted with a stratified random sample of 500 respondents of Daegu Metropolitan Government. The analytic results show that about 70 percent of the respondents are identified as philanthropists or free-riders in the provision of cultural services. Among them, the free-rider problem is generally regarded as a threat to the adequate provision of public goods. The results also reveal that the magnitude of the free-rider problem varies according to the differences of demographic variables, such as gender, income, household size and age.
