Description

The creative class thesis - that towns need to attract engineers, architects, artists, and people in other creative occupations to compete in today's economy - may be particularly relevant to rural communities, which tend to lose much of their talent when young adults leave. The USDA Economic Research Service creative class codes indicate a county's share of population employed in occupations that require "thinking creatively". A separate break-out of employment in the arts is also included. Data are provided for all counties in the U.S. for 1990 and 2000.
