Las estadísticas Oficiales de Turismo: principales lagunas en el contexto nacional e internacional /Official Statistics of Tourism: Major Gaps in the National and International Context



    () (Subdirector General de Estadísticas de Empresas del Instituto Nacional de Estadística, ESPAÑA.)


En el ámbito de las estadísticas de turismo se han producido notables desarrollos en los últimos años, tanto por parte del sector público como del privado. El actual sistema de estadísticas oficiales de turismo en España se puede considerar como uno de los más desarrollados en el contexto internacional pero todavía persisten importantes lagunas de información. La comparabilidad de resultados precisa de una mayor armonización metodológica puesto que cada país decide las fuentes de información y metodologías a desarrollar para dar cumplimiento a la normativa comunitaria. In the field of tourism statistics have been remarkable developments in recent years by both the public and private sectors. The current system of official statistics on tourism in Spain can be considered as one of the most developed in the international context but there are still important gaps in information. The comparability of results requires greater harmonization methodology since each country decides the sources of information and methodologies to be developed to comply with Community law.
