Overview of Oxford Economics research project - The Economic Impact of Creative Industries in the Americas
Background to the research 4 The area of creative and cultural industries is a cross-cutting issue that covers several areas of focus of the OAS, IDB and British Council. The development of national and regional cultural information systems is an ongoing priority for the OAS Member States. High Potential Sector The creative sector presents an attractive opportunity for growth and development for OAS economies through culture. Poor Data Coverage Poor data coverage creates a constant obstacle in meetings of cultural authorities and limits learning opportunities about cultural policies and programmes across OAS members. OE Research Oxford Economics have been commissioned to review the available data and will make recommendations as to how best to measure the contribution and potential of the sector.
5 Objectives of our research The objective of the study is to assess and demonstrate the economic contribution and potential of the creative/cultural industries. The scale of the sector will be analyzed using available secondary data, which will cover: Scale of Creative sector Trade Employment / GDP Cultural Consumption Infrastructure OE will make best efforts to locate, compile, and analyze existing data available and will identify any information gaps. OE will use national public and private data sources, as complemented by the methodologies used by UNCTAD, CAB, WIPO, UNESCO, inter alia. On this basis we will assemble country and industry datasets in the referenced format. - Creative Goods imports and exports - Creative services imports and exports - Limited data at the required level of detail - Dependent upon national studies - Video game expenditure - Advertising sales - Music sales - Film box office sales -Number of cinemas - Number of film distribution companies - Number of libraries - Number of museums

Defining the Creative industries
8 Confusion between creative and cultural industries The term creative industries has different meanings and uses throughout the world. In its broadest sense it is used to refer to all the industries that generate copyright, patents and trademarks. In other contexts it is used to refer only to such industries that produce content or cultural industries. (Hawkins, 1991) Possibly the most accepted definition at an international level is that of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in the UK. According to the Department, creative industries are those that: Have their origin in creativity, individual skills and talent and have the potential to create wealth and employment through the generation and exploitation of intellectual property.
9 No internationally agreed definition for the sector Different data providers define the creative / cultural sector in different ways – which is a global phenomenon and not specific to the Americas Therefore national studies are largely using an inconsistent definition of the sector All definitions require detailed digit ISIC information – which is scarce.
Overview of data availability in the Americas
11 Availability of Employment by Industry Data on national statistics websites Difficult to get granular employment information from national statistics websites Dependent upon placing statistical requests with National statistics authorities
12 Numerous national studies produced Data available from ad hoc national studies and statistical authorities on creative / cultural activity
13 Other data providers Excellent data available from specialist providers – but does not cover all OAS countries
14 A wealth of trade data Detailed trade data from UNCTAD for creative Goods and Services are available
Accurate measurement of the creative industries
16 Importance of measuring the sector The creative economy has become a topical issue of the international economic and development agenda UNCTAD statistics highlight it accounts for a significant and growing slice of the worlds economy, with the creative sector accounting for: $592 billion of exports (in 2008), growing at an average annual rate of 14 per cent between 2002 and % of world export of Goods (in 2008) 4.8% of world export of services (in 2008) As the sector grows it is important to continue to improve measurement and data coverage to Identify niche growth markets To track the evolution of the sector To enable policy officials to create a trading environment to enable the creative sector to continue to grow
17 How can the sector best be measured in the Americas An agreed definition across the OAS member countries Publication of labour market statistics and national accounts based on a common classification system and level of data disaggregation An agreed framework for measurement – ensuring consistency across countries Regularly updated accounting systems Creative / Cultural Satellite Accounts are an option to provide for a coherent framework for gathering and analysing statistical information on the Creative/Cultural economy
18 Creative / Cultural Satellite accounts A number of the OAS Member States, including Colombia, Argentina and Chile produce creative/cultural satellite accounts / yearbooks. These are central sources which contain a detailed analysis of the creative/cultural economy, including a wide range of cultural statistics and sub-sectoral data. The key objective and benefit of cultural accounts is that they produce information that makes possible economic analysis and evaluation of cultural activities in the country and to facilitate public and private decision-making in the cultural sector.
Creative / Cultural Satellite accounts Data included in Colombias Cultural accounts includes statistics on the following key creative/cultural topics: - Publishing -Books -Magazines -Newspapers -Audiovisuals -Movies -Videos -Television -Videogames -Radio -Music -Cultural Areas -Libraries 19 In general, satellite accounts provide data on key areas of interest, such as: - Value added - Employment - Cultural Infrastructure & Consumption
Outputs of the study
21 Country data files for each country
22 Summary dashboards for each country
24 Next Steps The format for the final report will include: Excel spreadsheets for all OAS and benchmark countries Economic dashboards to summarise key information and trends Narrative highlighting key findings, main trends, and information gaps and recommendation. The final report is to be submitted by May 1 st.
