Tourism Intelligence Unit: Recent Outputs and Future Priorities Sean White Destination Management Forum 10th October
Background to the TIU • The Tourism Intelligence Unit (TIU) was set up in ONS on August 1st 2008. • Developed through the English Tourism Intelligence Partnership (now ETRIP) • The aim was to make improvements to tourism statistics, especially those that relate to the tourism industries, the visitor economy and the economic impact of tourism. • TIU is currently funded from VisitEngland and VisitWales
Recent Outputs • The Economic Importance of Tourism: The UK Tourism Satellite Account for 2009 (June 2012) • Key Outputs: Tourism Direct GVA, Tourism Direct Employees and FTEs, Internal Tourism Consumption, Tourism Ratios • The Supply Side of Tourism in 2009 (February 2012) • Key Outputs: GVATI, Output, Employment characteristics, Tourism industry demography • The Sub-Regional Value of Tourism in the UK in 2008 (Oct 2011) • Key outputs: Tourism Direct GVA and expenditure data at NUTS 2 and 3 • A Review of Sustainable Tourism Indicators (October 2011) • Key Outputs: A set of indicators for monitoring sustainable tourism at the national and local levels
Examples: Direct GVA and Expenditure Tourism Direct GVA in sub-regions of the UK (Top 20 NUTS 2 regions) in 2008. (UK as a destination) Estimated Tourism Expenditure 2008 (£m) by UK NUTS3 Area and Visit Type (top 20 shown)
Examples: Tourism Employment Percentage of UK employment in main or second job by region of workplace and tourism / non-tourism activities 2009 Workplace–based employment in tourism industries by NUTS 3 area, 2008
Recent Outputs • Measuring Tourism Locally: Guidance Note One (version 2) This guidance note is the first of six updates to the original series produced by the TIU with the aim of providing local tourism officials a consistent framework within which to measure and collect data on various facets of tourism activity. • The other 5 guidance notes are now being scheduled for update, namely: • Guidance Note 2: Local Economic Impact Modelling • Guidance Note 3: Undertaking Visitor Surveys • Guidance Note 4: Tourism Benchmarking • Guidance Note 5: Measuring the Supply Side of Tourism • Guidance Note 6: Event Analysis and Evaluation
Future Outputs • Short Story on the geography of tourism employment: regional breakdown of tourism employment and trends over time e.g. part-time full-time split (Nov. 2012) • Supply Side Report for Tourism for 2010: update of regular report on tourism output and employment with an accompanying Short Story on aspects of tourism employment (Jan 2013) • Regional Value of tourism report: drawing on TSA results and presenting GVA data for regions and sub-regions. With accompanying short story highlighting regional differences (March 2013)
Looking Forward • Focus of the TIU will still be on the tourism economy – output, employment and value added….but • More emphasis on presentation and communication of the data • Use of the most up-to-date data series • Focus on the local scale and feeding data into the DIS • New areas of research to explore, e.g. indirect impacts of tourism, nowcasting techniques, and tourism productivity
