State-Level Estimates of the Arts’ Economic Value and Employment (2001-2015)

Posted March 2018

This profile features state-level estimates of arts and cultural value added, employment, and compensation derived from the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (ACPSA), which is produced jointly by the NEA’s Office of Research & Analysis and the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Commerce Department. State-level ACPSA estimates are available for total arts and cultural production, and for the 35 ACPSA industries.
For each U.S. state, the interactive map below illustrates: the amount and percentage of arts’ value- added as a share of the state’s economy; the number of workers employed by arts and cultural industries; and compensation (earnings and benefits) paid to these workers.
