Tourism Statistics


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.
