Information regarding sports and physical recreation facilities, other than buildings, has been sourced from the quarterly Engineering Construction Survey (ECS). The ECS aims to measure the value of all engineering construction work undertaken in Australia and collects information from businesses that have engineering construction as their main activity, together with other businesses known to be undertaking a significant level of this type of work. The information is sourced from a category defined as 'Recreation'.

Information about sports facilities in discrete Indigenous communities was obtained from the Community Housing and Infrastructure Needs Survey. This was conducted throughout Australia between March and June 2006.

Chapter 11 -- Industries includes information about the operation of Sports and physical recreation venues, grounds and facilities. The purpose of this chapter is to present information about the construction of these facilities in the general community and their availability in discrete Indigenous communities.
