ADDITIONAL NATIONAL ACCOUNTS MEASURES
The concept of a satellite account was introduced in the System of National Accounts 1993 to expand the core national accounts for selected areas of interest, while using relevant concepts and structures from the core national accounts. Satellite accounts allow the development of an integrated set of statistics about a particular sector which crosses a number of industries or sectors.
Tourism satellite account (TSA)
The TSA measures the contribution of tourism to the Australian economy. The emphasis in the TSA is on the measurement of tourism consumption and the size of the tourism industry, including its contribution to GDP. Within the TSA, a number of key economic measures associated with tourism are able to be identified. These include: tourism gross value added; tourism GDP; the tourism share of the value-added of major tourism-related industries (such as Accommodation, restaurants and cafes, and Air and water transportation); total household and business tourism consumption by type of products; consumption by overseas visitors; and employment generated by tourism. Together, these data form an integrated set of statistics on tourism products within the framework of the international standards. For more information refer to the Tourism chapter and the publication ABS Tourism Satellite Account (5249.0).
Information and Communication Technology satellite account (ICTSA)
The ICTSA measures the contribution of ICT to the Australian economy in 2002-03, in particular, the contribution of ICT to key macro-economic variables such as GDP. It provides details on Australian production of various ICT products, as well as related imports, exports, household consumption, business spending and investment. Together, these data form an integrated set of statistics on ICT products within the framework of the international standards. For more information refer to ABS Information and Communication Technology Satellite Account (5259.0).
Non-profit Institutions (NPIs) satellite account (NPISA)
NPIs play an important role in the provision of welfare, social and other services in Australia. The NPISA for Australia provides information on the economic impact of NPIs for 2006-07. This publication represents estimates of the direct contribution that NPIs make to the Australian economy and, in particular, the contribution of NPIs to key macro-economic variables such as GDP. As this satellite account is an integrated set of statistics on NPIs within the internationally recognised System of National Accounts 1993, it provides a valuable policy and research tool with a wide range of applications. For more information refer to ABS Australian National Accounts: Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account (5256.0).
Measures of productivity growth are important in understanding long-term improvements in Australia's living standards and changes in Australia's international competitiveness. At the most basic level, productivity growth occurs when the volume of output rises faster than the volume of inputs. A limited selection of productivity estimates are published as part of ABS Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product (5206.0) with a more detailed range of statistics and analysis of productivity estimates published in ABS Australian System of National Accounts (5204.0). The ABS Information Paper: Industry Estimates of Multifactor Productivity (5260.0.00.001) presents experimental estimates of multifactor productivity for the 12 industries defined to comprise the market sector of the economy.
