INTRODUCTION

The purpose of this chapter is to present information about businesses that operate within the Sports and Physical Recreation Industries, as defined in the ABS (2008a) Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications, 2008 (Second Edition) (ACLC) (cat. no. 4902.0). Sports and physical recreation is Division 3 of the ACLC Industry Classification and consists of business units mainly engaged in the presentation or provision of sports and physical recreation and associated services. Also included in Division 3 are business units which are mainly engaged in the manufacture, wholesale or retail of sports and physical recreation goods.

Division 3 also includes four industry groups; Group 31 Horse and dog racing, Group 32 Sports and physical recreation venues, Group 33 Sports and physical recreation services, and Group 34 Sports and physical recreation goods manufacturing and sales. Each of these groups consist of a number of industry classes.

Information about businesses classified to Groups 31, 32 and 33 has been obtained from the 2004-05 Service Industries Survey. Further information can be found in the ABS (2006b) publication Sports and Physical Recreation Services, 2004-05 (cat. no. 8686.0).

For Group 34, some information about wholesaling and retailers of sports and physical recreation goods (Classes 342 and 343) has been obtained from the 2005-06 Retail and Wholesales Industries Survey. Further information can be found in the ABS (2007c) publication Retail and Wholesale Industries, Australia, 2005-06 (cat. no. 8622.0).

Information about manufacturers of sports and physical recreation goods is only available in combination with information about manufacturers of other leisure goods. Nevertheless, this data, obtained from the 2005-06 ABS Manufacturing Industry Survey, is included in this chapter. Further information can be found in the ABS (2008f) publication Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2006-07 (cat. no. 8221.0).
