Selected Characteristics of Artists: 1970: Self-Employment, Migration, Household and Family. Research Division Report No. 10.
National Endowment for the Arts, Washington, DC.
Based on data concerning the artist population of the United States collected in the 1970 census, this report examines three patterns in the lives of artists. The first chapter analyzes self-employment patterns and includes information about the size of the self-employed artist population, its earnings, and a breakdown of self-employment patterns according to occupation. The occupations discussed are authors, architects, painters/sculptors, photographers, and musicians/composers. The second chapter presents data on the migration patterns of artists between 1965 and 1970. Specifically, their migration from region to region and to major metropolitan areas is analyzed. The final chapter examines the household characteristics of artists and includes information on their living arrangements, families, children, and marital status. (Twelve tables and six lists of figures are included.) (FL)
