The creative industries are growing more rapidly than other sectors in most parts of the country, according to a report by Nesta and Creative England.
The study, 'The Creativity of Geography in the UK: Creative clusters, creative people and creative networks', calculates that between 2007 and 2014 more than nine in ten of the 228 metropolitan areas (or Travel-to-Work-Area geographies) that make up the UK experienced faster growth in the number of creative businesses than the whole business population.
Over two-thirds of these areas also saw faster growth in creative industries employment than in overall employment too.
It identifies areas across the UK where the creative industries have concentration, growth or both. An interactive map of the data is available here.
