Music & Entertainment Industry: Market & Industry Information


Music Ally provides insight briefings, monthly insight reports, news, marketing reports, trend reports, country profiles, and data on the music industry

Industry Data

Library Databases for Industry & Market Research

This is just a small selection of market and industry data sources that the library has to offer. For more information, see the Newhouse Resources Guide and the Business Information Guide

Media & Survey Data

Media & survey data come from three main sources: Nielsen, MRI, and Simmons.

The library has academic subscriptions to MRI and Simmons, providing access to consumer survey data from across the country. While not geared specifically towards the music industry, these databases can be used to cross-reference consumer music use, media player ownership, and website use with television and magazine use for the same population.
