Studies from individual cities, states, and regions, including “America’s Creative Economy: A Study of recent conceptions, definitions and approaches to measurement across the US.” This study was conducted by the Creative Economy Coalition, a working group of the National Creativity Network. This study directly led to the creation of a project to profile and analyze how the creative economy is currently being defined, segmented, and quantified throughout the United States of America.
