Tourism Satellite Account: 2004

What it's about

The Tourism Satellite Account 2004 provides an updated analysis of the New Zealand tourism industry and is part of an ongoing programme designed to enhance understanding of the tourism industry in New Zealand.

Tourism plays a significant role in the New Zealand economy in terms of the production of goods and services and the creation of employment opportunities. Unlike 'conventional' industries such as agriculture or manufacturing, which are classified in accordance with the goods and services they produce, tourism is defined by the characteristics of the customer demanding tourism products. Therefore, tourism products cut across standard industry definitions, and alternative measurement systems are needed.

A tourism satellite account (TSA), consistent and integrated with New Zealand's official national accounts, is used to measure the economic contribution of tourism to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and to provide analysis of the New Zealand tourism industry. The emphasis in a TSA is on measurement of expenditure in New Zealand by resident and non-resident tourists, and on the size of the tourism industry, including its contribution to GDP and employment.

The Tourism Satellite Account 2004 report presents tourism expenditure, tourism's impact on the New Zealand economy in terms of both direct and indirect value added, and the number of persons directly employed as a result of tourism. Results presented cover the provisional outputs for 2003 and 2004 and a summary of the results for 2001 (Revised) and 2002.

The methodology used in Tourism Satellite Account 2004 follows international guidelines developed by the World Tourism Organisation (WTO) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

A printable version of this report is included as an Adobe Acrobat reader file. The pdf version of the report contains pictures of the tables and diagrams; all of these tables and diagrams are also available in an Excel file.
