The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) from the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) is to commission a Literature Review and Domain Report by one or more experts in the field of Arts, Culture & Recreation. This review and report will provide a state-of-the-art overview of relevant research, particularly Canadian research, and available time-series data. There may be as many as 50 or more potentially useful time-series available in this domain. Besides providing a comprehensive survey of the "things that matter" in this domain, the commissioned report will identify a list of 8-10 headliners in the domain that can be included in a composite index and a rationale for their selection. The report will also recommend a definition of Arts, Culture & Recreation and any recommendations for further research and development where data are currently not available.
Submission deadline: May 30, 2008
