New NEA Research Tool on Working Artists

The NEA has released an online research tool based on information of 2.1 million artists in the United States’ labor force. “Equal Opportunity Data Mining: National Statistics about Working Artists,” contains 70 searchable tables with figures on working artists by state and metropolitan area, by demographic information (including race and ethnicity, age, gender, and disability status), and by residence and workplace. The tool offers tables, a map of state-level rankings, and links to original sources.

The tool can also be found under the Tools and Tips page.
