International Recommendations for Tourism Statistics 2008 – Compilation Guide
The Statistics programme of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is happy to announce the successful launch of its Compilation Guide for Tourism Statistics. The Compilation Guide was drafted in close cooperation with the United Nations Statistical Division (UNSD) and provides practical guidance for using sources and methods to compile statistics on tourism and is an indispensable companion guide to the UN International Recommendations for Tourism Statistics 2008 (IRTS 2008).
The Compilation Guide is directed at all those involved in the compilation of tourism statistics, whether they work for National Statistical Offices, National Tourism Administrations or any other entity that produces, or can potentially produce information relevant for the compilation of tourism statistics. In addition, the Compilation Guide contains information that is of interest to users who would like to understand better the nature of tourism data.
The International Recommendations for Tourism Statistics 2008 Compilation Guide was officially endorsed by the United Nations Statistical Commission at its 45th session on 4-7 March 2014.
