    NAME OF ORGANISATION
    Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)

    OVERVIEW
    Due to the importance of the tourism industry the ABS focused a series of surveys on tourism-related industries for the 1991-1992 reference year.

    PURPOSE
    The collection of amusement and theme park data was conducted as a census of businesses selected on the basis of pre-defined selection criteria (refer to scope of the collection) in order to measure the size and structure of the industry.

    SCOPE
    The scope of the census included amusement and theme parks which met the following criteria:

    • business was primarily a tourist attraction and operated on a commercial basis;
    • attendances greater than 500 000
    • multiple rides

    The scope of this census was therefore limited to selected amusement and theme parks and the criteria for the 1991-1992 survey was different to the criteria for the 2000-2001 survey.

    Amusement and Theme Parks are classified to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) Class 9330 Other Recreation Services. Estimates were classified by State and size of business.
