Borrowing from an approach that sometimes appears in the finance sections of the popular press, LSGL analysis is a handy and versatile way to compare, portray and classify the patterns of real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth across all 51 states. In finance, this technique is used for comparing and assessing the market performance of individual securities or across industry sectors. For example, the performance of the 30 stocks contained within Dow are compared with one another over the past week in contrast to their performance over the past month using the Dow's respective averages as the points of reference.
Here in this United States Regional Economic Analysis Project report, we adopt this approach to gauge and compare the real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth of all 51 states over the latest available year (2021) against the backdrop of their growth over the long term period (2010-2021). In so doing we classify their growth and performance into 4 broad categories: Leading, Slipping, Gaining and Lagging.

2021 = 20.64%
This figure displays the 51 states of the United States as dots on a scattergram, with the vertical axis representing the average annual real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate over the long-term period (2010-2021), and the horizontal axis representing the real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate for the near-term (2021).
This figure sets apart those states whose long-term real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth exceeded the nationwide average of 4.00%, by portraying them in the top two quadrants demarcated at 4.00% on the vertical axis. State whose long-term average annual real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate trailed the nationwide average (4.00%) are distributed in the bottom two quadrants. In all, 29 states surpassed the nationwide average over 2010-2021, while 22 states fell below.
Similarly, the two quadrants on the right of this figure present the positions of the 25 states whose most recent (2021) real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate exceeded the nationwide average (20.64%). The two quadrants on the left feature those 26 states whose real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth over 2021 trailed the nationwide average.
Accordingly, each quadrant portrays the performance of all 51 states corresponding with their long-term (2010-2021) and near-term (2021) performance relative to their respective nationwide averages of 4.00% over 2010-2021 and 20.64% over 2021:
Leading states () (top-right quadrant)...are states whose average annual real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate surpassed the nationwide average both long-term (4.00%) and near-term (20.64%).
Slipping states () (top-left quadrant)...are states whose long-term average annual real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate exceeded the nationwide average (4.00%), but whose near-term growth has "slipped" by falling below the the United States average (20.64%).
Gaining states () (bottom-right quadrant)...are states whose long-term average annual real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate fell below the nationwide average (4.00%), but whose near-term growth has "gained" by registering above the average (20.64%) nationwide.
Lagging states () (bottom-left quadrant)...are states whose average annual real arts, entertainment, and recreation earnings growth rate fell under the nationwide average both long-term (4.00%) and near-term (20.64%).
