Abstract

Major reports of tourism forecasting studies are classified by forecasting method employed, reviewed, compared, and critiqued. A partial meta-analysis is used to attempt to gauge relative accuracy of the various approaches used in differing situations. Summary statements on the relative usefulness of the different methods in specific forecasting situations are provided. Some conclusions are drawn to aid future conduct and reporting of tourism forecasting reports.
