The State-Level Estimates of Arts Participation Patterns (2012-2015) highlights selected arts-participation rates for all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. These summary statistics were derived from the following studies: ANNUAL ARTS BASIC SURVEY, 2015 [UNITED STATES]; ANNUAL ARTS BASIC SURVEY, 2014 [UNITED STATES]; and SURVEY OF PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN THE ARTS (SPPA), 2012 [UNITED STATES].

The following tables are provided:

  • Tables 1 and 1a-1d - Events Attended: Reports AABS 2015 data on attendance at visual and performing arts events.

    Includes - attending a live music, theater, or dance performance; attending a live book reading, poetry, or storytelling event; going to see an art exhibit; going to a movie; and touring/visiting buildings, neighborhoods, parks, or monuments for their historical, architectural, or design value.

  • Table 2 - Literature Read: Shows AABS 2015 data on literary-reading rates.

    Includes - reading novels, short stories, poems, or plays.

  • Table 3 - Performed or Created Artworks: Shows AABS 2014 data on personal performance and creation of artworks.

    Includes - making pottery, ceramics or jewelry; making leatherwork, metalwork, or woodwork; making weaving, crocheting, or other textile art; playing a musical instrument; acting; performing or practicing dance; doing social dancing; performing or practicing singing; creating films or videos; taking photographs for artistic purposes; creating other visual arts (e.g., paintings, sculpture, or graphic design; and doing creative writing.

  • Table 4 - Arts Consumed via Electronic Media: Features SPPA 2012 data on arts consumption via electronic media.

Data tables in Excel files are available through NADAC (click on "Other" in the Dataset(s) section). For more information about these state tables, as well as background information on the AABS, please refer to the NEA's Arts Data Profile #11 (State-Level Estimates of Arts Participation Patterns (2012-2015)) and Arts Data Profile #10 (Results from the Annual Arts Basic Survey (AABS)).

Information on data collection and sampling of underlying data for each table can be found through the following ICPSR studies:

Each of the state arts-participation estimates reported in these tables has an associated coefficient of variation (CV) of less than 30 percent--the U.S. Census Bureau's criterion for "stable" estimates. This does not mean, however, that state estimates can be ranked. For many states, the standard errors of the estimates are too large to reliably assign rankings.

For more details, users are encouraged to read the supporting documentation for the data tables.
