Silicon Valley Institute for Regional Studies
All data is for 2009 and 2010, and comes from the Americans for the Arts Local Index and the National Center for Charitable Statistics. Contributed revenue measures total private giving to arts and culture organizations. Arts contributions per capita are calculated by dividing the total private giving to arts and culture organizations in each region by the 2010 population. Ethnic Responsiveness measures the number of organizations per 100,000 residents who are identified using the National Taxonomy of Exempt Organizations (NTEE) code A23, which refers to “cultural and ethnic awareness organizations” with missions to support ethnic activity in a community. Entrepreneurial Arts measures the share of nonprofit arts organizations with a founding (IRS ruling) date of January 2000 or later. Unites States per capita contributions for 2009 and 2010 were calculated by dividing total contributions to the arts from the annual Americans for the Arts National Arts Index (2012 Index for 2010 data, and 2011 Index for 2009 data), and dividing them by the 2010 U.S. Census population figure.
