ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents the key results of the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) for the years 2003-04 to 2011-12. Work on the TSA has been funded by the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism (RET). The complete TSA time series from 1997-98 to 2011-12 is available in the data cube associated with this publication on the ABS website.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The 2011-12 publication includes new data on tourism employed persons by gender.
REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
The TSA methodology involves estimating a full benchmark every third year. The statistics presented in this publication reflect a new benchmark in respect of 2009-10. See the explanatory notes for a description of the benchmark methodology.
As part of the 2009-10 benchmark process, the relationships established in 2006-07 have been reviewed and adjusted. Latest industry data and revisions to the supply-use tables have been incorporated, as have revisions to other input data series (see below) which together have resulted in revisions across much of the TSA series:
Upward revisions to direct tourism output, direct tourism gross value added, and direct tourism GDP (from 2002-03 to 2011-12) were an anticipated impact of the revisions to domestic tourism expenditure from the NVS. These were slightly offset by upward revisions to a range of industry supply and value added estimates across the economy, and downward revisions in some years for international tourism expenditure. These revisions, as well as minor changes to total industry employment, also result in changes to tourism employment estimates over the time series.
DATA VALUES AND ROUNDING
All values, unless otherwise indicated, are shown in Australian dollars rounded to the nearest million. Where figures have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between the sums of the component items and totals.
The 2012-13 issue of this publication is expected to be released on 19 December 2013.
