The report begins with a broad ranging statistical analysis of those working within cultural industries in Wales. Working with government data from the Annual Population Survey, section 3. A Statistical portrait of cultural occupations in Wales, presents us with an outline picture of numbers of individuals working in particular creative professions. Following this, section 4. Creative professionals data, reviews the range of creative practices currently within the Arts Council of Wales’ remit and analyses figures relating to individuals that have benefitted from Arts Council of Wales support over a ten-year period. Combined, these sections offer substantial baseline data against which future research findings may be measured.
