Creative economy employment in the EU and UK: A comparative analysis

This report compares the size and growth of the creative industries of the EU, UK and other member states between 2011 and 2013. Where possible, it also provides estimates of the number of workers employed in the creative industries plus those employed in creative occupations outside of the creative industries.

Key findings

• The creative industries employ 11.4 million people in the EU, accounting for 5 per cent of the EU workforce.

• Sweden has the highest proportion of its workforce employed in the creative industries (8.9 per cent), followed by Finland (8.2 per cent) and the UK (7.6 per cent).

• The country with the highest number of creative industry workers is Germany (which has the largest total workforce in the EU), followed by the UK and France.

• The UK accounts for 14 per cent of the total EU workforce, but a fifth (21 per cent) of all creative industry jobs.

• Employment in the UK’s creative industries grew three times faster in the UK than in the EU as a whole: 6.1% per annum on average vs. 1.8% per annum.
