The last indicator of specific nonprofit types includes the “catch-all” or miscellaneous types of organizations. Organizations in this group either span multiple types of arts and culture – and are thus too broad to fit into any of the other NTEE codes – or conduct some kind of activity that is in the arts and culture domain, but with small counts such that it has not been assigned an NTEE code. This indicator measures the number these other arts organizations for every 100,000 county residents. The two NTEE codes included are:
- A20 Arts, Cultural Organizations – Multipurpose
- A99 Other Art, Culture, Humanities Organizations/Services Not Elsewhere Classified
Data come from the 2009 Core Files from the National Center for Charitable Statistics.
Additional Information: Counties with indicator value = 619. Average county indicator value = 2.7. Median county indicator value = 1.2.
