Some experiments in survey and studies on tourism

Date of publication: June 15, 1967

Author: Jacques Antoine


The following report deals only with survey on French tourists who spend their holidays in France. The I.N.S.E.E. had already included questions on holiday spending in the survey mentioned above, which was effected a posteriori. It aimed to determine the range of total expenditure but was, however, divided into 3 major sections: transport, lodging, other expenses (especially food). In August 1967 , SOFRES conducted a first trial survey, using the method of a diary of the expenses which was handed out by an interviewer in the holiday resorts themselves. At the time of writing, the fieldwork has not been completed, so for the moment the final conclusions of the experiment are not available. Several comments may, however, already be made.
