A new CDP infographic, “The Scope of Our Arts & Cultural Sector” puts this information into a lively, interactive map. Users can click on a CDP state to view a snapshot of aggregate data along a number of quantifiable measures.
With more groups providing data every day and more states joining each year, the infographic will be continuously updated.
