HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE EMPLOYED IN SPORT AND RECREATION?

Exactly how many people are employed in sport and recreation in Australia? The Population Census provides us with part of the answer. But because it only records information on a person’s main job, those employed in second jobs in sport and recreation are not captured in Census data.

Drawing together data from both ABS and non-ABS sources, NCCRS estimated that 275,957 Australians were employed in sport and recreation. This estimate, and further details (including State and Territory estimates), were published in the report Employment in Sport and Recreation, Australia, which was released on 9 November 2000 by the Sport and Recreation Ministers’ Council. Copies of the report are available from the Department of Industry, Science and Resources on (02) 6213 7078.
