Utah Creative Vitality™ Index

The Creative Vitality™ Index (CVI™) is an annual measure of the economic health of the arts-related creative economy in Utah. In the CVI™, creative economy is defined as including for-profit and nonprofit arts-related creative enterprises, and the key support and service activities that sustain them. The Index is the result of research that was designed to develop a more inclusive and robust diagnostic tool related to the economic dimensions of the arts elements of the creative economy. Starting with 2013 reports we have one-sheets by county. For more information, and reports to the zip code level, contact David Wicai,, 801-236-7547. Download the CVI™ below:
