In more recent times, the ABS (2013a) publication Australian Industry, 201112 (cat. no. 8155.0) presents estimates of economic and financial performance of Australian industry. The businesses that contribute to the statistics in this publication are classified by industry, in accordance with the 2006 ANZSIC. Data is presented below on the 2006 ANZSIC Class 91 Sports and recreation activities.

The operating profit margin for sports and recreation activities was 9.5% in 2011–12. This is slightly higher compared with 2010–11 (8.8%) but lower compared with 2009–10 (14.3%).

(a) Includes working proprietors and partners of unincorporated businesses.
(b) The size of the RSE may be a misleading indicator of the reliability of the estimates for operating profit before tax. It is possible for an estimate legitimately to include positive and negative values, reflecting the financial performance of individual businesses. In this case, the aggregated estimate can be small relative to the contribution of individual businesses, resulting in a standard error which is large relative to the estimate.
