The goal of the article is in scientific justification of the methodological foundations of the study of the socio-economic value of tourism. Using results of the theoretical analysis, the article identifies essence of the socio-economic value of tourism as a type of economic activity. It establishes that the aggregated character of carrying out the tourist activity has impact on the socio-economic value of tourism, which is generated in different links of the production chain of the tourist activity. In the result of the study the article justifies that the tourist added value is a collective indicator, which reflects influence of tourism upon economic and social spheres and identifies its socio-economic value. The article generalises and determines the methodical essence of approaches to calculation of the tourist added value. The prospect of further studies in this direction is development of satellite accounts of tourism for determination of inter-branch connections, which, while influencing development of the tourist infrastructure and accompanying types of activity, identify the socio-economic value of tourism for the national economy.
