    In this paper an econometric analysis of the domestic tourism demand of households in Sweden is performed. To model the demand for tourism of households within Sweden, a two-staged budgeting model is used. The micro-economic data that are used come from the Tourism and Travel Database, which is the main data source for the tourism and travelling behaviour of Swedes. A model is estimated for as well total expenditures on domestic tourism as for different categories of tourism expenditures. These categories are accommodation, groceries, restaurants, shopping and transportation. From the resulting models income, expenditure and price elasticities are calculated. The elasticities are calculated for households that differ according to their household characteristics.
