This report provides detailed tables on the relationship between various individual characteristics and attitudes toward the performing arts among residents of the greater metropolitan areas of Austin, Boston, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Sarasota, and Washington, D.C. The report is an aggregate of individual reports prepared on each of the five communities.
