Abstract

The reported study measures the impact of the economic determinants of the international demand for tourist services in Spain. A panel data set of seventeen countries over the period 1985-1995 is used. By using appropriate panel data techniques the effects of real per capita income, exchange rates and real prices on the demand for Spanish tourist services. The estimated elasticities are +1.40, +0.50, and -0.30, respectively. The negative effect of the Gulf War is also detected, with a coefficient of -0.15. These results are comparable to previous empirical studies for other countries.
