La práctica del deporte, tanto el de alta competición como el de participación, requiere el consumo de productos y servicios deportivos, hecho que genera producción y ocupación. En este contexto, adquiere un interés especial la cuantificación de la importancia económica del sector del deporte. Es decir, cuestiones como cuál es el peso económico del deporte, o cuántos puestos de trabajo están asociados al deporte, son algunas de las preguntas a las cuales este estudio pretende dar respuesta para el caso concreto de Cataluña en el año 2006.
