Abstract

There are several variables used in the study of tourism demand. In this paper we propose to compare a traditional variable (nights spent in Italy by residents) with a variable on expenditure for domestic tourism of Italian households. These data sources, provided by the Italian National Statistical Office (ISTAT), are compared each other, in order to increase the knowledge of the phenomenon under consideration. The analysis, covering the period 1997-2009, reveals interesting similarities and divergences between the two series.
