Chapter 9: EU action on sports statistics
Starting from an historical and methodological background of statistical accounting the sports economy, the chapter focuses on the European Union’s sport satellite accounts. The three – statistical, narrow, and broad – definitions of the sport sector adopted in Vilnius in 2007 are presented as well as the data required to fill the corresponding classes of CPA (Classification of Products by Activity) and some methodological tricks to be overcome. The results are exhibited for ten countries’ national sport satellite accounts published so far, then an estimation of the economic weight of sports-related activities in nationwide total in 2005. Then a discussion follows regarding the merits and hindrances met in elaborating on EU sport satellite accounts, which delineates the limits of this statistical and accounting exercise and opens avenues for further research.
