Pilot project on the use of mobile positioning data for tourism statistics

Use of mobile positioning data for tourism statistics

This pilot project aims at assessing the feasibility of using mobile positioning data for generating statistics on inbound and domestic tourism flows in the Czech Republic. The six localities have been selected where the records from mobile operator (positioning data) will be compared with the number of visitors gathered by face-to-face survey. The results will be used for setting the methodology of the inbound (and domestic) tourism survey in the future (2016 or 2017).

Project Objective:

Pilot intended to go to production to supplement existing data

Project Outcomes:

The feasibility study of using mobile positioning data for generating statistics on inbound and domestic tourism flows in the Czech Republic. Comparison of new methods (mobile positioning data) with currently-used method (estimating the number of visitors by the use of accommodation statistics, data from border survey and estimation procedure).

Publications Comments:

There will be reports from the project available.
