The Density of Artistic and Cultural Creatives

So to what degree is the density of artistic and cultural creatives associated with key regional economic outcomes? Our correlation analysis suggests that the connection is strong. The density of artistic and cultural creatives is closely correlated with regional income (.614), wages (.622), output (.533), and innovation (.431). (As usual, I point out that these correlations point only to associations between variables. They do not specify any causation or make any claims about the direction of causality. And, of course, other intervening variables may come into play).
