TOURISM VIEWED AS AN INDUSTRY
The main results from those surveys are summarised in the table below:
The ABS previously conducted a survey of these industries (with the exception of casinos) in respect of 1986-87. In the period from 1986-87 to 1992-93, employment in these industries increased 21%, which represented an annual average rate of growth of 4%.
In addition to the above industry surveys the ABS also undertook a survey of amusement and theme parks in respect of 1991-92. Broadly speaking, an amusement park is a centre which typically offers rides, games and shows for entertainment. A theme park is similar to an amusement park but provides a range of entertainments and/or displays organised around a specific theme. Amusement and theme parks were included in the survey if they met the following criteria:
The four largest amusement and theme parks accounted for 60% of income, 45% of employment and attracted 3,478,000 visitors in 1991-92.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
