* Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD), described by the source as "a composite index which measures neighbourhood deprivation across seven domains (for example housing and income deprivation). The IMD decile group splits neighbourhoods into ten groups according to the level of deprivation (e.g. 10% cost deprived neighbourhoods)."

The survey excluded those who engaged with the arts for the purposes of paid work or academic study.
