Technical Research Report 4_CCI Provincial Location and Cluster Report_04 May 2020 - (v.2) In 2017/18, Conningarth Economists undertook an Economic Mapping Study for the South African Cultural Observatory (SACO) to determine the impact of the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) on the South African economy. This original study has now been updated to reflect more current information to 2020. Both the original 2017/18 and this updated 2020 study apply the same basic modelling structure for economic impact analysis of the CCI, with the principal difference being updated data inputs. The previous study relied to some extend on information from other Department of Sports Arts and Culture (DSAC) mapping studies. However, this current study is based mainly on new datasets sourced from StatsSA.
