The Contribution of Sport to Economic Growth and Employment in the EU

The Contribution of Sport to Economic Growth and Employment in the EU

The Study on the Contribution of Sport to Economic Growth and Employment in the European Union was carried out in 2011-2012, based on data collection in all 27 EU Member States focussing on sport as an economic activity.

The methodology utilised a specific adaptation of the National Accounts of the Member States, using these accounts to make a Multiregional Input-Output Table: Sport (MRIOT:S) which is based on 27 national InputOutput Tables: Sport. This means that the chosen approach is consistent with the National Accounts on the one hand and intra-EU trade on the other.

National Accounts are the main reference point for economic policy making on the national macro level and are normally maintained by the statistical office of a country. A satellite account is an extension of the standard national account system. A Sport Satellite Account (SSA) – being the core of an Input-Output Table: Sport – filters the National Accounts for sport-relevant activities to extract all sport-related figures while maintaining the structure of the National Accounts. The instrument of SSAs permits all sport-related economic activities to show up explicitly, rather than keeping them concealed, in deeply disaggregated (lowlevel) classifications of the National Accounts.
