Metro Music Index
NOTE: This map is a measure of the concentration of musicians and music-related businesses, not the vibrancy or impact or quality of artists to emerge from a location.
While radio and the recording business have become much more corporate and standardized, musicians still cluster more in some places than others.
"Cities with vibrant music scenes mimic the process of innovation."

Unfortunately, that’s far from the case. Though we know the country’s gross domestic product quarterly, its retail sales monthly, and stock market numbers minute-by-minute, we rarely hear statistics on our country’s people.
How long can a baby born today in Missouri, New Mexico, or Minnesota expect to live? What proportion of adults have completed high school in Houston as compared to Dallas? What wages and salaries are typical of Latinos in the United States, and how do they compare to those of whites or African Americans?"
