WHERE DO GOVERNMENTS SPEND THEIR SPORTING DOLLARS?

The Standing Committee on Recreation and Sport (SCORS) has requested that the NCCRS undertake a collection of data on Commonwealth, State, Territory and Local government funding of sport and physical recreation for the 2000-2001 financial year. Output from the collection will provide the first consistent and comparable data on funding of sport and physical recreation by the three levels of government and will be the starting point for a time series to monitor change in funding over time. Categories of funding that are likely to be included in the final report are: government and non-government administration of sport; venues and facilities; clubs, teams and individuals; and support activities. Collection activities have commenced and output, in the form of an ABS publication, will be released in late 2002.
