EXPENDITURE BY HOUSEHOLDS




INTRODUCTION

This chapter presents information about the expenditure by households on sports and physical recreation. Expenditure data has been obtained from the Household Expenditure Surveys for 1998-99 and 2003-04, and also from the 1996-97 Population Survey Monitor.


The Household Expenditure Surveys collected information about expenditure by households resident in private dwellings and used the Household Expenditure Classification (HEC) to categorise the products purchased. The product categories included in this chapter as relating to sports and physical recreation are those which most closely align with one or more sports and physical recreation product classes as defined in the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (ACLC) Product Classification.


Because there is not an exact match between categories of the HEC and those of the ACLC Product Classification, there are some instances of individual products which are out of scope of the ACLC being included, and in-scope products being excluded. For example; sports bags, gun oil and powder scales are all classed as sports and physical recreation equipment in the HEC but are out of scope of the ACLC Product Classification.


During 1996-97, the Population Survey Monitor (PSM) collected data regarding expenditure on individual organised sports and physical activities by persons aged 15 years and older during the preceding 12 months. Although relating only to organised activities, the data identify areas of sports and physical recreation expenditure, such as clothing and transport, which are not identifiable from the Household Expenditure Survey. The 1996-97 PSM was the last for which expenditure data was collected.



This section contains the following subsection :
      Chapter 6.2 Expenditure by Households - Household Expenditure Survey 1998-99
      Chapter 6.3 Expenditure by Households - Population Survey Monitor 1996-97
