This report presents a compilation of national statistics on the not-for-profit and commercial arts fields and is intended to serve as a reference book for arts statistics. The focus is on nationally representative data collected through research efforts and donations of statistical information by arts related organizations. The statistics are presented in nine chapters, four of which are general and cross-disciplinary. Five chapters focus on specific or groups of arts disciplines. The included topics are: (1) arts in the economy; (2) artists and arts administrator employment; (3) arts education; (4) performing arts; (5) visual arts; (6) literature; (7) museums; (8) motion pictures, radio, and television; and (9) arts audiences. Summary information is provided for each topic, and over 500 tables, charts, and figures are included. Appendices contain a 15-page bibliography and a classification list of states from both the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and the U.S. Bureau of the Census Current Population Survey. (JHP)
