NAME OF COLLECTION
Australia. Small area data are available at Statistical Local Area level, subject to confidentiality constraints.
Frequency of data availability
Quarterly - including monthly occupancy measures and takings.
Due to Commonwealth Government Budget cuts in 1997 to the ABS's funding, the scope of the STA has been reduced as from 1 January 1998. The survey now comprises three elements:
(i) an on-going collection confined to Hotels, Motels and Guest houses (with toilet/washing facilities in most rooms) and Serviced apartments, with 15 or more rooms/units. Serviced Apartments were previously included under other headings, but are now being separately identified due to their growing importance as competitors to hotels and motels.
(ii) a triennial expansion of the on-going quarterly survey to include caravan parks (with 40 or more powered sites), visitor hostels (with 25 or more beds) and remaining Holiday flats and units (with 15 or more units); and
(iii) compilation of annual accommodation counts of number of establishments and capacity data covering the scope of the STA conducted up to the end of December 1997, ie. Hotels, Motel, Guest houses and Serviced apartments (with 5 or more rooms/units);Caravan parks (with 5 or more powered sites);Visitor hostels; and Holiday flats and units establishments (other than those included with Serviced apartments) (with 5 or more units).
