NOTES


ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

This publication presents the key results of the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) for the years 2002-03 to 2010-11. 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 2010-11 is available in the data cube associated with this publication on the ABS website.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

The 2010-11 publication reflects results from the annual TSA update process where estimates for the latest year are modelled using movements in visitor consumption, and consequently a less detailed set of information is presented.

The 2010-11 publication includes additional data on tourism employment status. Estimates of full-time and part-time tourism employed persons by industry are shown, as is the tourism industry contribution to total full-time and part-time employment. Full-time and part-time employed persons are consistent with the Labour Force Survey definitions (cat. no. 6202.0).


REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

Revisions to source data used in the compilation of the TSA has resulted in minor revisions to earlier year estimates. In particular, the following estimates have been revised:
  • Estimates of passenger transport services provided to international visitors have been revised as a result of revisions to international trade in services data compiled by the ABS.
  • Economy wide national accounting aggregates have been revised to make them consistent with the 2010-11 issue of Australian System of National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0), impacting on ratios of tourism to overall economic activity.
  • A small number of unpublished national accounting aggregates used in this update were subject to historical revisions back to 1995. These have been revised back to 2007-08 only, with the full revisions to be incorporated as part of the 2009-10 benchmark in the 2011-12 publication.


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.


NEXT ISSUE

The 2011-12 issue of this publication is expected to be released in April 2013.
