Definition: Statistical unit (Cultural tourism)


For household demand-side surveys the statistical reporting unit can be the household and the individual within the household. For surveys held in the very location where the visitor carries on his cultural activity, the statistical unit is the visitor or travelling party.
As far as the supply of cultural tourism is concerned, the statistical units to be considered are found at the enterprise level, the local unit level and the kind of Activity unit level.
