About the creative workforce data

This is a summary of fact sheets detailing key findings of a creative workforce national mapping project within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI), which was completed at the end of 2007.

The Creative Digital Industries in Australia: Innovation in Quantitative and Qualitative Mapping project was jointly funded by a Linkage grant from the Australian Research Council, with funds and other contributions from the Queensland University of Technology and what was the Australian Government Department of Communications, Information and the Arts and the Australian Film Commission.

The project’s aim was to map the size, scope, structure and value of creative industries in Australia. In the process, it developed new definitions and methodologies for identifying and examining the creative industries, the creative workforce and creative activity, and drew on Census data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to provide a picture of creative employment across the Australian economy.

Selected findings from the project are reported at Research: Statistics: Employment. This complements other employment data at Research: Statistics for the audiovisual industries by contextualising the size of film and television within the broader creative workforce, separating creative and non-creative occupations within the creative industries, and including those people working in creative occupations outside the specialist creative industries.

Updates will be available periodically from the CCI Creative Economy Mapping website.
