NAME OF ORGANISATION
Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)
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.
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.
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.
The statistical unit for which statistics were reported in the census was the amusement/theme park. Census participants were asked to report only those activities of the business that took place at the location of the nominated amusement/theme park.
The data include the number of attractions and theme parks surveyed, number of visitors by month, details of employment, components of income and expenses.
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.
