The Tourism Satellite Accounts 2007-08 Summary Spreadsheets provide each of Australia’s states and territories with comprehensive data on the economic impacts of visitor expenditure on their economies. The research has been undertaken by STCRC to help inform policy and planning initiatives for the three tiers of government and provide data for tourism industry representative bodies and tourism operators to support decisions in the areas of industry investment, advocacy, marketing, education and training. The Economic Contribution of Tourism to Australian States and Territories 2007–08 presents an overview of the economic impacts of visitor expenditure on state and territory economies as estimated in STCRC’s Tourism Satellite Accounts 2007–08. This document is intended to provide a ‘plain language’ simplified explanation of tourism’s economic contribution to Australia’s states and territories for the period 2007–08.
