Summary View help for Summary
The Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (ACPSA) is produced through the partnership between the United States Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Built with the BEA's input-output (I-O) accounts, the ACPSA provides detailed statistics that illustrate the impact of arts and cultural production on the United States economy. Specifically, this account provides an assessment of the arts and cultural sector's contributions to gross domestic product (GDP).
For years 1998 to 2020, the ACPSA presents annual statistics about the following items: (1) Output of detailed arts and cultural commodities and the industries producing these commodities; (2) employment and compensation within these industries; (3) arts and cultural value added by industry; and (4) commodity-flow details for arts and cultural production products.
In the data tables provided, the statistics fall under two broad categories: (1) core arts and cultural production and (2) supporting arts and cultural production. The core category contains the commodities in which the output primarily contributes to arts and culture. Performing arts, museums, design services, and arts education are included in the core category. The supporting category consists of commodities that support the core category through publication, dissemination of the creative process, or other supportive functions. This category contains event promotion, printing, and broadcasting.
The seven national-level data tables provided for each year from 1998 to 2020 include:
- Table 1. Production of Commodities by Industry
- Table 2. Output and Value Added by Industry
- Table 3. Supply and Consumption of Commodities
- Table 4. Employment and Compensation of Employees by Industry
- Table 5. Total ACPSA-related Employment by Industry
- Table 6. Output by ACPSA Commodity
- Table 7. Real Output by Commodity
For years 2001-2020 a state-level value added and employment data table is included. It contains value added by industry by state, estimates for each state annually of employment and compensation by industry, and comparisons with ACPSA employment and compensation by industry the same year. It also includes the annual total of employment in each state across the arts and cultural commodities industries.
In addition, estimates of real value added by industry and estimates of real gross output and prices indexes by ACPSA commodity are provided in separate Excel files. The industries and commodities presented in the data are based on the 2007 North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS). Users are encouraged to review the Table Guide as it gives important information for all data tables. Also, users should review the NEA Guide to the U.S. Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account and the latest Arts Data Profile Series reports dedicated to the ACPSA: The U.S. Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (1998-2020) and State-Level Estimates of the Arts' Economic Value and Employment (2001-2020).
