Greetings friends! Long time-o!

I want to share this information with you. It came out in June 2008 and has great information about our artist communities. The executive summary is a great place to start. It features charts and graphs that illustrate our numbers, where we live, what fields we practice and lots more. I encourage you to read it and welcome your feedback and ideas.

Artists in the Workforce: 1990-2005
Artists in the Workforce: 1990-2005 is the first nationwide look at artists' demographic and employment patterns in the 21st century. Artists in the Workforce analyzes working artist trends, gathering new statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau to provide a comprehensive overview of this workforce segment and its maturation over the past 30 years, along with detailed information on specific artist occupations.
