The statistic Tourism of residents in Catalonia provides quarterly and annual information on the number of tourist trips made by people residing in Catalonia whose primary destination is Catalonia, the rest of Spain or abroad, and on the expenditure associated with these trips.
The interactive consultation of this statistic allows crossing of various variables related to the main characteristics of these trips: primary destination, area of residence, length of trip, reason for travelling, main accommodation type, way of organisation, type of trip and means of transport. When a calculation is possible, it also provides the year-over-year variation of each variable. The data reference period is considered the month in which the trip ends, regardless of its length.
