CEEMID uses Music Professional surveys to understand working conditions, skills, remunerations, concert economy, granting. (See: who are the music professionals?) Statistical data, such as unemployment, average wage or GDP data is mainly produced by statistical reporting, anonymized tax returns data and mandatory financial statement data by the national statistical authorities. However, because the music industry is dominated by freelancers and microenterprises, in most countries they do not participate in statistical reporting and submit only simplified tax returns and create simplified annual reports. This means that the music industry, and creative & cultural industries are not well represented in official statistics.
The ESSNet Culture working group of Eurostat and the national statistical offices recommends the use of representative national surveys. CEEMID has designed such surveys for 7 years in the music and the film industry and in some cases proven that the surveys were nationally representative.
