Data Archives

Data archives contain raw data files that are used for secondary analysis in research.


  • Cultural Policy and the Arts National Data Archive (CPANDA) is the world's first interactive digital archive of policy-relevant data on the arts and cultural policy in the United States. It is a collaborative effort of Princeton University's Firestone Library and the Princeton Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies. The Pew Charitable Trusts underwrote the original development of the archive.



  • National Endowment for the Arts – Research Reports. A comprehensive account of trends and findings related to an NEA-funded arts discipline, to arts participation generally, or to arts access or artist employment. Typically contains original research and detailed statistical analyses.
