Member Consultants, Instructors, Advisors & Trainees: There are important correlations that give metro areas with arts, design or culture-based districts clear competitive advantages over other metro areas around the continent.

Ratios

How this serves the study parameters in Aesthetic Determinism: We can establish as a social fact the undisputed draw museums, major celebrity series, art expositions, major collections, design shows, festivals and gallery shows offer. We can measure this social fact by counting and we can relate this social fact to others to yield correlations and predictions. Thereby, we can establish 'laws' of our particular society, that is our society's statistical 'norms.' This premise being true, it implies a 'determinism' and makes the study a science. Established, 2001.

Perhaps, you don't see some of the correlations and prediction indicators between the Ratios and the competitive advantages afforded to Metro Areas adopting Arts, Design or Cultural Districts?
