Abstract

We present a new, global database on tourist destinations. The database differs from other databases in that it includes both domestic and international tourists; and it contains data, for the most important destinations, data at national level as well as at lower administrative levels. Missing observations are interpolated using statistical models. The data are freely accessible on the internet.

Keywords: Tourism, data

JEL Classification: L83
