Formatted abstract The creative industries, it is said, are becoming increasingly important for the economic growth and well being of modern industrialized economies. The economics literature on the creative industries to date has focused primarily on the microeconomics of the creative industries from a theoretical perspective. While reports on the size, employment and value added of the creative industries abound, empirical research regarding the dynamics of the creative industries remains wanting. This thesis develops and presents a novel method for addressing this research gap through the analysis of stock market data. Specifically, this thesis constructs a creative industries stock market index from publicly listed Australian companies. The validity of the index is then tested and a series of simple econometric analyses are performed to provide evidence for its usefulness in examining the creative industries.
