Where Artists Live: 1970. Research Division Report #5.
Based on 1970 U.S. Census data, this report notes that there were 500,000 persons employed during that year as artists who performed as actors, architects, authors, designers, musicians and composers, painters and sculptors, photographers, radio and television announcers, and in other arts-related fields. Part 1 provides a summary and analysis of the geographic distribution of employed artists, while part 2 specifically describes the principal residential characteristics of each of the major artist occupations, identifying where people in each field were concentrated in terms of total numbers in a community and in proportion to an area's general population of employed persons. Part 3 describes the relative size of each state's and the District of Columbia's employed artist population. It identifies which types of artists were predominant, how the states compared with each other in the employment of artists, and states' urban areas that had large concentrations of working artists. An appendix provides 33 tables of demographic data, and other tables, figures, and maps are included. (JHP)
