To provide relevant tourism information at the State and regional level.
The Western Australia Travel Survey measures travel activity in the regions of Western Australia. In 1995 and 1996, self-completion questionnaires were distributed to 8,000 guests staying in commercial accommodation. A telephone survey was also taken of 11,000 Western Australian households.
Commercial accommodation and households were surveyed for data on:
- visitor characteristics (number and origin of visitors, purpose and length of visit, activities undertaken);
- type of accommodation used; and
Western Australia and 11 tourism regions of Western Australia.
Frequency of data availability
Information from the Western Australian Travel Survey is available covering the years 1995 and 1996. Future information on regional data will be available from the end of 1999, sourced from the National Visitor Survey (NVS).
Data are available for 1991-92 and 1994-95 financial years, and 1995 and 1996 calendar years. The only comparable data is for the 1995 and 1996 calendar years.
Data from the Domestic Tourism Monitor and some State Tourism Surveys which have now been replaced by the National Visitors Survey (NVS) are not directly comparable with NVS results.
