Creativity Indexes

  • The Creative Vitality™ Index (CVI™) is an index and research tool that measures annual changes in the economic health of an area by integrating economic data streams from both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. The Creative Vitality™ Index is a resource for informing public policy and supporting the work of advocates for creative economies. CVI™ reports have been used as a way to define the parameters of an area’s creative economy and as a means of educating communities about the components and dynamics of a creative economy.https://cvi.westaf.org/content/what-cvi
