Employment characteristics of UK tourism industries in 2008
AbstractSummaryThis article uses an analysis of data from the Annual Population Survey to provide estimates of the characteristics of employment in tourism industries in 2008. The results indicate that employment in these industries is more likely to be part-time, self-employed or temporary than in non-tourism industries.The data also highlight that the workforce in tourism industries has a younger age profile than in other industries and that there are greater proportions of non-UK born and non-white workers in tourism industries. The article includes comparisons of different tourism industries in employment terms and features information at sub-regional geographical level.
