It seeks to measure the social and economic impacts suffered by the CCIs and to provide comparable data on these industries and their development. The study covers from 2008, when the crisis broke out, to 2013, when the crisis slowed down. Methods: The study is based on the analysis of four variables (turnover, value added, employment and number of companies) in seven subsectors of the CCI (Architecture; Performing Arts, Visual arts; Film and video; Libraries, Archives and Museums; Books and newspapers; and Advertising), based on official data obtained for the purposes of this article. Results and conclusions: The CCIs have had a limited impact in the Community of Aragon, where the Books and newspapers subsector dominates the market. In general terms, all subsectors have suffered a significant decline in the aforementioned indicators within the selected period of time.
