Image for 2013 Benchmarking Data Report Now Available

Nov 26, 2013

The Benchmarking Data Report contains of wealth of quantitative data on faculty pay rates, instructional fees, administrative staffing and salaries, financial aid, enrollment demographics, program offerings, organizational finances, and more. It is an essential tool for community arts education providers engaged in strategic and program planning, budgeting, salary negotiations, and organizational assessment.

Data were gathered through a survey conducted in April 2013 and reflect figures from the 2011-2012 academic year. The Guild conducts this critical survey every few years for the benefit of our members and the field as a whole.

The report is available as a free download to member organizations that completed the survey, or for purchase by others (members, $125; nonmembers, $175).

Order by mail or fax. Or call (212) 268-3337 ext. 16.

The report provides essential benchmarking data to help you with your planning, budgeting, policy making, and advocacy efforts. You'll get answers to questions like:

  •     What is the pay scale for development directors, marketing directors, and other staff?
  •     What is the average fee for 30 minutes of individual private instruction?
  •     What is the average percentage contribution made for healthcare benefits to full-time and part-time employees?
  •     What is the average total dollar value of need-based financial aid awarded directly to individual students?
  •     And more!

Custom reports are also available at modest prices. If you would like to order a custom report, or if you have any questions on the Benchmarking Data Report, please contact Ken Cole at 212-268-3337 ext. 18 or
