CHANGES TO THE SURVEY OF TOURIST ACCOMMODATION

The Survey of Tourist Accommodation is a quarterly survey undertaken by the ABS to measure the demand and supply of tourist accommodation. The results from this survey are published in Tourist Accommodation, Australia (cat. no. 8635.0) and Tourist Accommodation, Small Area Data (cat. no. 8635.1.55.001 - 8635.8.55.001, 8635.0.55.002).

The core survey collects information from hotels, motels, and serviced apartments with fifteen or more rooms. Since 2005 the Department of Resources, Energy, and Tourism has provided funding to the ABS to expand the scope of the survey to include hotels, motels and serviced apartments with five to fourteen rooms, caravan parks, visitor hostels, and holiday flats, units and houses.

The funding for the expanded scope will cease at the end of the June quarter 2010. Results for June quarter will be published on 30 September 2010.

The Survey of Tourist Accommodation will only collect and publish information from accommodation providers in the core scope of the survey from September quarter 2010. Current breakdowns of the core scope by tourism region and star grading are not affected by this change.
