Publication: Jeffri, J. 1998. Information on Artists II. New York: Research Center for Arts and Culture/Columbia University.
Summary: "Information on Artists II (study two) attempts to address the limitation of Study One and other surveys that do not reflect the cultural diversity of the population being studied. This parallel study followed the same general procedure with the same survey instrument, but made a more active effort to obtain artist lists from organizations that were more likely to serve artists of color. The data are reported in the same document, but separately from study one because of the differing methodologies used" (Jeffri 1998).
