The Craft Artist Membership Organizations Survey 1978 was a planned census of craft artist membership organizations in the United States. Based on directories and consultants in the crafts field, 1,218 organizations were identified for inclusion in the universe. All identified organizations were mailed an advance letter in May 1978 to inform them of the survey. A postcard was included for address corrections and for organizations to request removal from the list if they were incorrectly identified as craft membership organizations. A total of 947 eligible craft membership organizations completed questionnaires. The data file archived at CPANDA has 21 extra cases, for a total of 968. The survey collected data on membership characteristics, organizational structure, organizational purposes and activities, funding, and the problems faced by craft artist membership organizations.
