What you need to know

Quarterly updates for industry jobs:

Keep in mind that our data provider, EMSI models jobs within creative industries from more than 80 different public and proprietary sources. EMSI updates its jobs data quarterly based on when the data sources EMSI uses in its model are updated. When these quarterly updates occur previous data are also adjusted.

So what does this mean for you? For example, 2012 jobs numbers from one data update might look different when getting 2012 employment figures from another data update. This approach allows you to have the most complete picture of your area’s creative jobs. Having just one data source is not enough to understand the complexities of your creative job market. These data sources work in tandem with each other; filling in the gaps where one data stream is insufficient.

Having these types of quarterly updates is considered a best data practice. Having the most current and accurate numbers will give a better understanding of the creative workforce in your region.

Comprehensive count of jobs

Many workers in the creative economy are either part-time or are self-employed which is why occupation data in the CVSuite includes full and part-time workers, and sole proprietors.
