Statistics on employment in sport are derived from data collected by the European Labor Force Survey (EU-LFS).
These statistics aim at investigating the contribution of sport employment to the overall employment and monitoring of a number of jobs in sport over time.
The EU definition of sport which encompasses "all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organized participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels" delineates the reference field in measuring sport employment. The statistical translation of this definition - the 'Vilnius Definition of Sport' - proposed by the Expert Group on the Economic Dimension of Sport, identifies the core sport sector refered as 'statistical definition of sport' and sport-related economic activities (NACE) and their correlated products (CPA).
