dc.description.abstractThis paper investigates the geography and the effect of people in creative oc-cupation in Germany. The population share of the Creative Class as well as of bohemians and artists is relatively high in larger cities, but smaller places and rural regions may also have a considerable proportion of people with a creative job. While ethnical and cultural diversity and a high level of public supply in health care and education can explain the distribution of creative people, employment opportunities seem to play only a minor role. There is a positive statistical relationship between the share of people in creative occu-pations, the level of new business formation and the innovativeness of re-gions. A high share of creative occupations seems to be conducive to regio-nal growth; however, the exact nature of this relationship is still unclear.en_US
