Early April the survey on business and leisure tourism begins. A formal letter of invitation is sent to a sample of residents aged 15 years and over.
The questions relate to travel and excursions made by residents during the last quarter. STATEC likes to point out that it never concerns questions for future trips. People are selected from the National Registry whose telephone number is available and are contacted by telephone. The other people in the sample fill out, by accessing a personalized access code provided in the invitation letter, an online questionnaire on www.statec-tourisme.com . The telephone survey is carried out by a German company called T.I.P. BIEHL & PARTNER on behalf of STATEC.
According to the results of the survey in 2015, a lot of residents are going on vacation every year (83%). They are going regularly (4 times a year) and have a generous budget allowing them to travel abroad and to stay at the hotel (2,800 €/year).In the “Regards 8-2017” you will discover the results of the survey tourist practices of residents comparing to their European neighbors .
