This chapter provides information on music, theatre, dance, opera and a variety of other activities which come under the broad heading of the performing arts. Attendance data from a 2002 ABS survey and detailed employment data from both the Census of Population and Housing and an ABS survey on work in selected culture and leisure activities are the main sources of information about involvement with the performing arts. This is complemented by data from a 2002-03 survey of businesses operating in Australia which gives information on the income, expenditure and employment of selected music and theatre production and performing arts festival organisations.
