NASAA’s brand-new tool, the Creative Work Force State Profiles, lets you explore employment and compensation in your state’s arts and culture sectors. Created in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), with data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (ACPSA), this interactive dashboard quantifies the contributions of the arts and culture to state economies by highlighting:

  • arts and culture sector employment and compensation data for every state, as well as the nation
  • profiles of the arts and culture alongside other key industry sectors (including mining, forestry, construction and retail)
  • regional views of how your state compares to your neighbors
  • employment and compensation trends over time

Creative Work Force State Profiles MapTo learn more about how the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account is situated within the field of creative economic development, please read NASAA’s new States and Creative Economy Research FAQ. Further information and technical documentation on the ACPSA state level data is available through the NEA’s Arts Data Profile #13.

This is just the beginning. As more state level ACPSA data become available in the months ahead, NASAA will expand this interactive tool. Additionally, stay tuned for NASAA’s soon-to-be-released Interactive Database of Statewide Creative Economy Studies, which foregrounds the purposes, methods and key data points of 72 unique state level creative economy studies. In the meantime, please check out the Creative Work Force State Profiles, and don’t hesitate to contact Ryan Stubbs or Patricia Mullaney-Loss for help in using this information in your state.
