The 1992 Local Surveys of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA), sponsored by the Research Division of the National Endowment for the Arts, provide information about Americans' participation in the arts -- including ballet, opera, plays, museums, and concerts -- in 12 communities. A local sponsor in each community assisted in funding the research and helped to design sections of their local questionnaire. The local SPPAs were intended to augment the 1992 national Survey of Public Participation in the Arts, conducted by the Bureau of the Census. Each survey included three components: 1. A "Core Questionnaire," common to all 12 sites, including arts participation and demographic information identical to the 1992 national SPPA; 2. A set of questions, common to all sites but not included in the 1992 national SPPA, concerning facilities where arts participation occurred, reasons for not attending more often, and sources of information about arts events; 3. Community-specific modules, developed by the local area partners to address specific information needs in each community. The 12 communities surveyed were Broward County, FL; Chicago, IL; Dade County, FL; Las Vegas, NV; Philadelphia, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Reno, NV; rural Nevada; San Jose, CA; Seattle, WA; Sedona, AZ; and Winston-Salem, NC.
This report summarizes the results of a research project commissioned by the Research Division of the National Endowment for the Arts to examine arts participation patterns in 12 communities across the U.S. The research involved two major components: the administration of an arts participation survey to randomly selected households in each area and research into the supply of local arts programs and facilities. Survey results for each site were then analyzed in the context of local arts activity levels, uncovering a rich and varied texture behind the statistics.
