Presents estimates of the direct contribution of the tourism industry to the Australian economy. These estimates are within the context of a satellite account linked to the Australian System of National Accounts and are for the years 1997-98 to 2010-11. More detailed results from the benchmark years of 2003-04 and 2006-07 are presented in the 2008-09 issue of this publication. The publication shows the contribution of tourism to major economic aggregates, such as GDP, as well as details by type of visitor, which products were purchased by tourists, and which industries supplied those products. In addition, data on employment in tourism industries and visitor numbers is presented. The Tourism Satellite Account provides users with a macro-economic framework to conduct analyses of tourism impacts on the economy.
