Since the early 1960, substantial sets of data to support theory and test
hypothesis have been available to those working in the social sciences.
Both the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research at
the University of Michigan, and some forward looking university computing
centers come to mind in this regard. However, like access for topics in
culture and the arts has been very limited.
Therefore other readers of Humanist may be especially interested to learn
of a major new resource for data in culture and the arts just launched
here at Princeton University. It is called CPANDA (Cultural Policy & the
Arts National Data Archive), and provides access to current research and
also to a variety of otherwise hard-to-find data on the arts, including
public opinion, city-specific data and newly released statistics. It can
be found at http://www.cpanda.org. A press release with more detail on
the launch, including the generous financial support of the Pew Charitable
Trusts, can be found at
Anyone with comments or questions on the project, or wishing to suggest
data that might be made available through CPANDA, can contact Ann Gray,
project director, at 609 258-6052 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
