How Strong is Your Social Net? 2011 Results
3. Who responded?
The largest numbers of respondents described themselves as multidisciplinary arts presenters (25.5%), theater organizations (18.9%), music organizations (14.6%), and “other”—a category we didn’t specifically list (19.4%).
This “other” category included institutions such as arts agencies or service organizations, non-art museums, groups involved in arts education, and libraries/literary arts organizations. A significant number of groups work in the other two artforms we named, visual arts (12%), and film/video (1.5% ).
Nearly half of our respondents (48.5%) work at arts organizations that have annual operating budgets of under $500,000.
Our respondents represent 45 states and 840 towns, cities, or parts of major metro areas. We had the highest numbers of responses from California (23.7%), Montana (12.8%), Pennsylvania (9%), and New York (6%). These four states represent just over half the data we collected.
