One in seven businesses belong to the tourism industries - Issue number 32/2013

This article presents recent statistics on the tourism industries in the European Union (EU). While tourism statistics traditionally focus on either the accommodation sector or the demand side (from a household perspective), and relate mainly to physical flows (arrivals or nights spent at tourist accommodation establishments, or trips made by residents of a country, this analysis is based on economic data extracted from other areas of official statistics, in particular structural business statistics (SBS) and short-term business statistics (STS). Thus a more complete economic picture can be drawn of this sector, which is an important motor for many countries' economies and labour markets.
