Tourism Research Australia - Businesses (LGA) 2016

This dataset presents statistics about the businesses which are involved with tourism in specific Local Government Areas (LGA) around Australia. The LGAs covered in the data are a subset of the LGA boundaries classified in the 2016 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

The data represents information about the number of businesses involved in tourism by the number of employees they have employed. The data was sourced for the year 2016.

Tourism Research Australia (TRA) first developed Local Government Area tourism profiles in 2007 to assist industry and Government decision making and to identify and support investment opportunities, particularly in regional Australia. The latest profiles provide an update for over 200 Local Government Areas. Data are drawn from TRA's International Visitor Survey (IVS) and National Visitor Survey (NVS), along with demographic and business data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). Profiles were only prepared for Local Government Areas with adequate International Visitor Survey (IVS) and National Visitor Survey (NVS) sample to present robust results.
