Alpine Shire

Tourism and hospitality workforce

In 2016, there were 655 people who make up the tourism and hospitality workforce in Alpine Shire, of this 43.8% worked full-time and 56.8% worked part-time or were away from work.

Tourism and hospitality are key industries in many parts of Australia, but it has not been well represented in economic profiles in the past due to the difficulty in defining it.

The tourism and hospitality industries are defined by the ABS not as regular industries but as a set of occupation categories working across a number of industries.

This page presents some key statistics for tourism and hospitality workers in Alpine Shire with comparisons to benchmark areas. Tourism and hospitality data should be viewed in conjunction with the Industry sector analysis page for the accomodation sector, which has modelled estimates of the size of the industry on an annual basis. The Employment locations page will show where accommodation activity is taking place and the Local workers section will reveal the characteristics of accommodation workers.

Please note: Due to a change in the occupation classification, Tourism and Hospitality occupation data are currently only available from the 2016 Census.
