Gross Value Added (GVA) of the sports economy of countries has been provided in the report of the Sport Satellite Account (SSA). Employment and Consumption Expenditure has also been investigated to present the economic value of the sport sector in EU. The methodology of the Sport Industry Statistic such as SSA is necessary for the further development of Japan’s Sport Industry. SSA is the international standard, with its original definition of sports named the Vilnius definition. The purpose of this study was to figure out how to compose Japan’ s SSA while understanding how to apply the Vilnius definition in the Japanese context and make the economic statistics of Japan comparable to other countries using the SSA.
The Vilnius definition is based on the Classification of Products and Services (CPA). It became clear that in the current economic statistics of Japan, there is no classification table corresponding to CPA. Thus, the Input-Output Table (IO Table) and the System of National Accounts (SNA) could be useful instead of CPA..
This study clarified how to apply the Vilnius definition for Japan’s SSA. The Vilnius definition is a guide to defining products / services related to Sport Industries in Europe, but in using it, it is necessary to carefully consider the different circumstances of each country.
It would be important to create Japan’ s own SSA based on this study and utilize it for promotion of the Sport Industry in the future.
