On the survey, respondents were asked to allocate their music-related income from the previous 12 months among eight possible buckets:

  1. income from composing/songwriting
  2. income from sound recordings
  3. income from live performance/shows/gigs
  4. income from being a salaried player
  5. income from doing session work/freelance work
  6. income from their knowledge of the craft: teaching, lectures
  7. income from their brand: merchandise, persona licensing, acting
  8. other

983 survey respondents said that 100% of their music-related income fell into just one of these buckets. The chart above shows which buckets these musicians were relying on.
