A new report on the state-by-state economic impact of arts and cultural production will be released Wednesday, April 19, at 10 a.m. Eastern time by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
The report will provide – for the first time ever – state-level information on employment and employee compensation in the arts and culture sector, covering the years 2001-2014.
The report will also provide new statistics on the contribution of arts and cultural production to the U.S. economy during 2014, along with revised national statistics for 2012-2013. The report is part of the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account, which is supported by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account is part of a series of BEA satellite accounts that complement BEA’s core industry economic accounts. These satellite accounts focus on specific industries, such as travel and tourism, and provide data users with more detailed economic information, a useful tool for analysis.
