Tourism Destination Competitiveness: Measurement Issues
Composite indicators are a useful tool to synthetize and monitor multidimensional phenomena and in the last decade they are pervading several domains of tourism studies. This study includes a systematic review of destination competitiveness definitions, concepts and measures and the evaluation of existing composite indicators through the application of an enriched version of the OECD technical guideline to build composite indicators. The results and the knowledge gained through the analysis of the selected indicators provide tourism scholars and practitioners involved in measuring destinations’ competitiveness with both an assessment of available indicators´ ability to capture tourism competitiveness complexity and a statistical toolbox to assess their effectiveness in empirical evaluations.
