This pioneering new title has been conceived to provide users and producers of tourism statistics, and those interested in labour statistics in general, with a consolidated volume on the measurement of employment in the tourism sector. It contains information on methodology, as well as descriptions of employment, wages and hours of work in the tourism industries. The definitions refer to all major statistical sources, as well as methods used by countries to compute these variables.
Sources and Methods: Labour Statistics – Employment in the Tourism Industries (Special edition) is the first of three volumes to come out of a joint project by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) to improve national methods of data collection of employment in the tourism industries. The information has been collected through a set of specially developed questionnaires sent to the National Statistical Offices and the National Tourism Administrations in more than 200 countries and territories.
