Measuring tourism developments
All tourism data are accessible online, open and free, through the OECD data portal.
Tourism statistics are collected and processed using the OECD Statistical Information System. Data is compiled using the International Recommendations for Tourism Statistics 2008 and the Tourism Satellite Account: Recommended Methodological Framework 2008.
The OECD is strengthening tourism data collection and analysis, and the timeliness of the data. The pilot testing of selected core indicators of the measurement framework “Indicators for Measuring Competitiveness in Tourism: A Guidance Document” is being pursued to gather evidence of country practices, methodologies and examples of application.
Global Forum on Tourism Statistics
The Global Forum on Tourism Statistics provides a platform for the exchange of views and experiences on developments in tourism statistics and use for policy and business.
The Forum is organised under the aegis of the OECD Working party on Tourism Statistics which supports the implementation of the statistical agenda of the Tourism Committee.
