Provisional Tourism Satellite Account: 1998–2000

What it's about

The Provisional Tourism Satellite Account 1998-2000 (TSA98-00) is an updated analysis of the New Zealand tourism industry. It builds on, and is consistent with, the Tourism Satellite Account 1997 (TSA97), which was published in May 2001. The publication of these two reports is part of an ongoing programme designed to enhance the understanding of the role that tourism plays in New Zealand.

Tourism plays a significant and increasing role in the New Zealand economy, in terms of production and employment. However, unlike “conventional” industries, such as agriculture and manufacturing, tourism has not been explicitly measured in the official economic statistics. The tourism satellite accounts, consistent and integrated with New Zealand’s official national accounts, ensure that the importance of the tourism sector is measured and understood in the context of the New Zealand economy as a whole.

The report presents tourism expenditure, and tourism's impact on the New Zealand economy in terms of direct and indirect value added, and the number of persons directly employed as a result of tourism. Results presented cover the provisional outputs for 1998-2000, and a summary of the results of TSA97.

The report details the Tourism Satellite Account methodology, which underlies both TSA98-00 and TSA97. The methodology is consistent with guidelines published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Tourism Organisation (WTO).
