Este documento apresenta os ajustes metodológicos introduzidos na segunda pesquisa de campo realizada pelo Ipea no âmbito do Sistema Integrado de Informações sobre o Mercado de Trabalho no Setor de Turismo (SIMT), a qual teve como objetivo atualizar os coeficientes de demanda turística utilizados para o cálculo das estimativas de ocupação no setor. O artigo também elucida alguns dos fatores que podem gerar divergências nas estatísticas sobre o mercado de trabalho na área, tais como o recorte de atividades consideradas como turismo, a restrição ou não da análise do emprego apenas àqueles relacionados ao consumo de turistas, a inclusão do mercado informal, entre outros. Apesar de a metodologia ainda se deparar com alguns desafios, as estimativas obtidas são consistentes com as percepções de especialistas internacionais em estatísticas do turismo e com dados análogos de países com sistemas de estatísticas avançados. This paper presents the methodological adjustments introduced in the second field research conducted by Ipea under the Integrated Information System on the Labor Market in the Tourism Sector with the aim of upgrading the tourist demand coefficients used in the estimation of tourism employment. The paper also elucidates some of the factors that can explain the existence of different statistics for the tourism labor market, such as the scope of activities considered as tourism, the restriction of the analysis to employment related to the consumption of tourists or not, and the inclusion of the informal market. Although the methodology still faces some challenging issues, the estimates obtained are consistent with the perceptions of experts in international tourism statistics and with similar data from countries with advanced statistical systems.
