What proportion of annual income comes from documentary work?
Nearly half of documentary professionals (47%) make most or all of their gross annual income from documentary work.
46% of BIPOC professionals make all or most of their income from documentary, compared to 48% of white documentary professionals. But a full half (50%) of women documentary professionals received most or all of their income from documentary work, compared to 39% of men who did. Male-identifying documentary professionals are therefore more diversified in their incomes than women-identifying professionals.
