Why (pay to) subscribe to Statistical insights on the arts?
Sponsors get custom data and analysis for just $750!
Hi folks. Now is the ideal time to upgrade your subscription to Statistical insights on the arts.
Paid subscribers get access to all posts and archives, including recent analyses of job vacancies, environmental practices, and innovation statistics for each province. Many more good things are in the works, including lots of details about artists and arts workers from the 2021 census!
This is a unique service that I’m offering — to my knowledge, no one else is monitoring available statistics and thinking “hmm, I wonder if there is an arts component to that?” Or asking “what can this tell us about the state of the arts in Canada (or about a specific issue — e.g., the aforementioned job vacancies, environmental practices, precarity of artists, etc.)?” This data mining takes time and money!
The information that I’m providing in paid-subscriber-only posts should help you:
Keep on top of challenges and trends
Spur creative thinking about your local situation, or the situation in your discipline
Help in your advocacy or policy work
Assist in fundraising efforts and funding applications
Statistical insights on the arts has multiple subscription levels: free, monthly payments, yearly payment, and a sponsor / shareable option — which gets you access to custom data and a post on artists in your jurisdiction (or discipline).
The differences between the subscription levels are summarized here:
Why subscribe at the sponsor / shareable level?
At the highest level, for just $750 (all in), you will receive sponsor's mention in a custom research post that will be free to all readers. (Yes, just $750 for a short piece of custom research that will bear your logo.)
Now is the time! This year, the custom post and data of greatest interest will likely be information on artists in your jurisdiction or discipline, including many important breakdowns (occupation, gender, education, age, racialized individuals, Indigenous Peoples). Census occupational data will be released on November 30.
The 5-year census is our best regular source of statistics on artists. If you were hesitating about upgrading to a sponsor level subscription, hesitate no more. Get included in the forthcoming custom data request!
The sponsor-level subscription will also allow you to share every weekly post with all staff — including the majority of posts that are behind a paywall.
Here is an overview of the benefits of the sponsor / shareable subscription level.
Join the conversation!
Conversations with paid subscribers around the new census data started a month ago with a discussion of artist occupation groups. Our discussions will continue:
I am currently working on ideas for a custom data request on artists (and cultural workers) in municipalities / provinces / territories that have taken out a sponsor-level subscription. I will open up a discussion of these ideas with sponsor-level subscribers in the next week or so.
Paid subscriptions contribute to the sustainability of this important arts research effort. I cannot make this last without the support of sponsors and other paid subscribers!

P.S. If you are not familiar with the information offered weekly in Statistical insights on the arts, the following slides summarize what I’m up to …
Recently, I posted an update on the job vacancy crisis in the arts:
I have identified the arts, heritage, and entertainment as a leader in innovation since the pandemic:
I try to provide provincial and local information when possible, such as a comparison of perceptions of the benefits of the arts and culture:
