In respect of 1991/92 financial year, the ABS conducted a series of surveys on tourism-related industries. These industries included motor vehicle hire, hospitality and amusement and theme parks.
The hospitality industries survey collected information from businesses classified to Division H, Accommodation, Cafes and Restaurants and Class 9322, Casinos, of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). Division H includes all businesses mainly engaged in providing hospitality services in the form of accommodation, meals and drinks, and includes Accommodation; Cafes and restaurants; Pubs, bars and taverns, and Licenced clubs industry classes.
The objective of the survey was to provide fundamental baseline data necessary to understand the nature of the hospitality industries, to enable comparison with other industries and to provide a benchmark for measuring change over time. Specific objectives were to:
- measure the size and structure of hospitality industry
- identify the income and expenses of these industries, and
- enable comparisons of the industry to other industries
The survey excluded businesses which did not have employees at the time the survey population was selected. Non-employing businesses contribute a relatively small proportion of the total economic activity and their exclusion from the survey would not have signifucant impact on the published data. The survey included the four industries classified to Division H and Class 9233, Casinos, of the 1993 edition of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). Division H includes all businesses mainly engaged in providing hospitality services in the form of accommodation, meals and drinks and includes Accommodation: Cafes and Restaurants; Pubs, Taverns and Bars; and Licenced Clubs industry classes.
The hospitality industries publication includes data on number of businesses, employment, wages and salaries, items of income and expenses, and the number and cost of live entertainment performances. Measures of productivity and profitability include industry gross product, operating profit before tax and a range of ratios. Some data by industry size and state is also given. Also included are tables containing the number of licensed clubs which provide access facilities for people with disabilities.
The hospitality industries comprise businesses whose primary activities are the provision of accommodation, selling of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, provision of food and entertainment. The businesses are classified to the following classes of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC).
Accommodation (ANZSIC 5710)
