The project contributes to the understanding of the key characteristics of tourist activity in Split-Dalmatia County based on the internationally harmonized methodological apparatus of the (regional) satellite account of tourism.
Despite the insufficient level of data on the economic effects of tourism in 2021 and 2022 at the national and regional level, the project establishes an approach to the analysis of tourism activity at the regional level.
Starting from the 'bottom up' principle and the assessment of the physical and monetary characteristics of tourist activity, the project has set, methodologically aligned, accounts of visitor expenditures, production, and employment, and provides an assessment of the gross added value of the Split-Dalmatia County generated by tourism in 2021 and 2022.
Along with a detailed description of the limitations of the set methodological framework and the assumptions and data sources used, an important part of the project are recommendations for the necessary improvement of county tourism statistics.
