Addendum

The demographics of the FMC “Money from Music” survey’s jazz respondents were roughly similar to the demographics of RCAC’s “Changing the Beat” respondents. The RCAC study surveyed 733 non-AFM jazz musicians in San Francisco, New York, and Detroit; and 1,963 AFM jazz musicians in San Francisco, New York, New Orleans and Detroit in 2000. Below is a population comparison of “Changing the Beat” and “Money from Music.” You can view the key findings of our data memo on jazz musicians – which includes an analysis of a few key questions asked by both surveys – here.
