National Arts Index
Local Arts Index
The 2013 National Arts Index delivers a 2011 score of the health and vitality of the arts nationwide. The 2013 report bears witness to how the arts sector fared as the economy slowly and unevenly recovers from the Great Recession. The Local Arts Index was launched in 2012 as a tool to better understand the characteristics of the cultural life of individual communities as measured at the county level. Updated information added in May 2014!
