Cultural Policy & the Arts National Data Archive

The Cultural Policy & the Arts National Data Archive (CPANDA) acquires, archives, documents, and preserves data on the arts and cultural policy in the United States in four areas: artists, audiences, organizations, and support for the arts. Designed for scholars, journalists, policy makers, artists, cultural organizations, and the public, the CPANDA Web site is searchable by keyword and provides links to data sets organized by title and state. A Quick Facts section provides an overview of the information available in each area, basic statistical data and graphics, and a brief analysis addressing frequently asked questions. Other resources on the site include research guides and links to relevant organizations, academic centers, government agencies, and data archives. The archive, a collaborative effort of Princeton University's Firestone Library and the Princeton Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies, is funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts.
