Arts / Attendance

The percentage of Pittsburghers who attend performances and exhibits is notably higher than the national average, with the people of Allegheny County often in the vanguard. The eight measured arts activities are listed below.

These conclusions draw on a regional survey done in the fall of 2006 and national data from the National Endowment for the Arts. In comparing regional and national data it is important to note that the 2002 and 2008 NEA surveys were supplements to the 2002 and 2008 Current Population Surveys conducted by the U.S. Census, while the 1997 NEA and 2006 Pittsburgh surveys were done by telephone, typically yielding more positive responses. The Pittsburgh and 1997 NEA numbers are thus more comparable. To view the local survey, click here. For the survey methodology, click here. For the complete Pittsburgh dataset, click here.
