Stand up and be counted - census 2012

Creative Skillset Census

The Creative Skillset census is the most comprehensive survey of creative employers.

Taken together with previous censuses, it provides insight into the changing composition of the industries' employment patterns and geography over time.

It includes up-to-date and detailed estimates of the size and shape of the creative media industries' workforce as a whole, as well as covering separately: television, film, interactive media, radio, facilities, animation, corporate production, computer games and VFX.

It also considers the representation of women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups (BAME) and people with disabilities, enabling consideration of the changing representation of diverse groups across the industries.

Follow the links below to read the results of the latest Census including what it means for your industry.  Find out how the representation of women and people from BAME backgrounds has changed and read the results from previous Censuses.
