Good quality research provides us with the evidence to understand the issues affecting the arts in Wales. This helps us to support the arts in Wales, as well as plan the effective use of our resources. It can also help to encourage others to invest in the arts.

We commission a number of research projects and continuous surveys. Our data collection ranges from Official Statistics publications to annual attendance and participation surveys, plus bespoke reports for arts organisations.

We're a provider of Official Statistics. That means a number of our statistical outputs are now included within the scope of the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA), and we strive to comply with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (2018).
