Peters, Mary G. Monnie
The Census of Service Industries, which is conducted by the U.S. Bureau of the Census in years ending with 2 or 7, collects information on the number of organizations and selected financial measures in both performing and non-performing arts disciplines. This report presents and analyzes the 1987 data in chart format. The aim is to provide a view of the size, breadth, and health of the world of arts organizations in order to assist in the development of arts policy and planning. Based on responses to questionnaires, information is given regarding growth in revenues, receipts, or expenses of organizations in 50 states and the District of Columbia. The information is presented by categories and subcategories as follows: (1) Performing Art Organizations, including data on: Changes Since the 1977 Census, Comparison with Service Organization Data, Aggregate Financial Statistics, and Geography of Performing Arts Organizations; (2) Museums, Art Galleries, Arboreta, Botanical and Zoological Gardens, including data on: Changes Since the 1982 Census, Aggregate Financial Statistics, Comparison with Service Organization Data, and Geography of Museum Institutions; (3) Retail Art Dealers; and (4) Establishment of Visual Artists and Writers.
