Reporting the Arts

Reporting the Arts II analyzed arts-and-culture coverage by 17 metropolitan and three national daily newspapers. In additional to data on articles with arts-and-culture content, NAJP classified the sections of each newspaper according to one of seven categories (news, business, sports, daily arts and lifestyles, weekend arts, non-arts features, and advertising) and counted the pages of each section and its proportion of the total pagination of the newspaper.

The study was conducted by the National Arts Journalism Program (http://www.najp.org). Funding for the surveys and the published report was provided by the Pew Charitable Trusts (http://www.pewtrust.com), John S. and James L. Knight Foundation (http://www.knightfdn.org), The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation (http://www.macfound.org), The Rockefeller Foundation (http://www.rockfound.org), Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture (http://www.fondsbkvb.nl), and The Fund for Amateur Art and Performing Arts (http://www.fapk.nl/english).

The data from the study are archived at:
