''Waiting in the wings? The choice to create''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.1 )
This analysis addresses how individuals self-identify as being in “artistic” versus other professions. Specifically, I examine how job identification varies based upon employment status, and how individuals choose to transition more or less readily into and out of “artistic” versus other professions. Data come from the 1990-2018 United States Current Population Survey Merged Outgoing Rotation Group (CPS-MORG) files. The results provide preliminary support for including creative expression when designing utility metrics, particularly those relating with sectoral employment decisions.
