Adept Economics has been engaged by the QFSR Skills Alliance to produce a 20-30-page report on the economic (i.e. GSP, FTE employment impacts), social and health impacts (incl. future savings to public health budgets from improved community health) of sport and active recreation in Queensland. For the purposes of this study, the sector is defined to include:
The report will be informed by desktop research and data analysis (e.g. of ASC, ABS, Tourism Research Australia, and IBISWorld industry data), as well as stakeholder consultations. It will draw on existing economic impact reports such as those by Boston Consulting Group and KPMG. A wide range of economic activities associated with the sector will be analysed, including:
Indirect economic (value added & FTE jobs) impacts—i.e. via purchases of goods and services the sector makes from other sectors—will also be estimated.
All estimates of impacts will be broken down for the four sub-sectors specified above (i.e. fitness industry, sport, outdoor recreation, community recreation).
