The Few, The Brave

I came across this data on the sound recording industry in Canada. The source is TCI Management Consultants and the data looks a little suspect to me. Recording studios in Canada employ 300 people? Seems very low.

The sound recording industry in Canada provided approximately 17,000 full-time jobs in 1998.

Independent Labels: 300
Major Labels: 1,200
Manufacturers: 2,500
Distributors & Retailers: 5,500
Performers, Composers, lyricists: 4,500
Studios: 300
Concert Workers: 900
Associations: 150
Other (managers, producers, misc.): 850
Total: 17,200
