Arts and Economic Prosperity

Nationally, the nonprofit arts and culture industry generates $166.2 billion in economic activity every year—$63.1 billion in spending by organizations and an additional $103.1 billion in event-related spending by their audiences. The study is the most comprehensive study of the nonprofit arts and culture industry ever conducted. It documents the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture industry in 156 communities and regions (116 cities and counties, 35 multicounty regions, and five states), and represents all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The $166.2 billion in total economic activity has a significant national impact, generating the following:

*  $5.7 million full-time equivalent jobs
*  $104.2 billion in household income
*  $7.9 billion in local government tax revenues
*  $9.1 billion in state government tax revenues
*  $12.6 billion in federal income tax revenues
