State Tourism Satellite Account 2019–20

About this report

The State Tourism Satellite Account (STSA) highlights the importance of tourism to each state and territory's economy.

The 2019–20 edition of the STSA is the first to capture the impacts of the bushfires and the early months of COVID-19 at a state and territory level. It sheds light on where the impacts were felt most deeply. Key data covers:

  • consumption
  • employment
  • economic activity.

We use the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Tourism Satellite Account and Labour Force Survey data.

We extend the work of the ABS by examining state and territory tourism performance.
