The tourism industry comprises a large number of goods (i.e. products and services) and thus covers all areas of production in the national accounts. The most important goods are accommodation, catering, passenger transport, travel agencies, tour operators and sports, recreational and cultural services. The demand for these goods from overnight and day-trip tourists thus trigger additional production and subsequently value-added and employment effects in the economic sectors concerned.

In order to be able to capture these effects in their entirety, a Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) for Austria was developed on the basis of international guidelines, which has been compiled annually since 2002. Since it is an overall accounting system, numerous relevant internal and external data sources are brought together.
