An exploratory model of mediterranean tourist flows

Date of publication: November 23, 1967

Author: Georges Comès


The extent of the tourist flows towards the Mediterranean seashore zones can depend a priori on a wide range of factors. We undertook a simple study involving only readily accessible' data so as to assess the existence or the absence of a structure in the formation of these flows, and to make it possible to orient statistical surveys and investigations necessary for an ulterior study to be undertaken on a wider scope. The purpose of this study was therefore to devise a simplified explanatory model that will elucidate the underlying principles of the structure.
