Este articulo analiza varios indicadores de actividad turistica en 100 regiones de 12 paises de la Union Europea durante el periodo 1990-2000. Analizamos las posiciones que las distintas regiones ocupan en el ranking de indicadores de turismo hotelero y extra-hotelero. Consideramos que ambos tipos de turismo son importantes pues tienen una influencia positiva sobre el desarrollo del Valor Añadido y el Empleo en varios sectores, especialmente en los servicios comerciales y en la construccion. Presentamos un modelo econometrico que tiene en cuenta el impacto positivo de ambos tipos de turismo sobre el empleo no agrario de las regiones europeas. This article analyses some indicators of tourist activity on a regional level in 100 European Union regions belonging to 12 countries during the period 1990-2000. We analyse ranking positions in hotel tourism indicators and extra-hotel tourism indicators. Both types of tourism have a positive influence in the development of Value-Added and Employment in several sectors, particularly in commercial services and building activities. We present an econometric model that has into account the positive impact of both types of tourism in non-agrarian employment of European regions.
