CANIZALEZ RAMIREZ, Paola Marbella  and  AVILES OCHOA, Ezequiel. A methodology for classifying cultural/creative industries in a medium-sized city: Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.72, 00003. ISSN 2448-4849.

This analysis is aimed at schematizing a methodological proposal for classifying cultural/creative industries in Culiacan, and determining their contribution to production dynamics, based on the North American Industry Classification System, 2013, and the Classification Guide for the Canadian Framework for Culture Statistics, 2011. In view of the limited empirical construction on the subject in Mexico, the purpose is to carry out a classification useful for unifying the occupations involved in creation, production and distribution through domains in order to implement a regulation that specifies the operability of nine industries in this city, based on the statistical comparison by economic branches of the secondary and tertiary sectors. It follows that the volume and growth of detected activities, firms and employment delimit the cultural/creative industries which are apt for promoting the production system’s capacity in a local economic cluster. The classification is flexible and does not exclude omissions; it rather can be conceivable in other cities.

Keywords : cultural/creative industries; cultural economy; regional economy; cluster; Culiacan.
