Summary:

In 1994, Americans for the Arts (then known as the National Assembly of Local Arts Agencies), released the first of what would become the annual Arts & Economic Prosperity (AEP) reports.

Data was collected from 789 arts organizations in 33 communities in 22 states, analyzing three consecutive fiscal years, and rigorously executed as sound methodology to derive reliable economic impact results.
