How optimistic are you for the next 3 months? (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire respondents)
The Tourism Industry Barometer is a nationwide survey conducted on a quarterly basis. The survey is a partnership between VisitScotland, local councils and destination organisations. The results are used at a regional level to provide feedback to businesses on how tourism in our area is performing.
49 respondents from Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire gave feedback on Quarter 1 2019 (January to March inclusive).
Nearly two/thirds (65%) of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire respondents claimed to be very or quite optimistic about the next 3 months (April to June), lower than the Scotland-wide figure of 74%.
The national response for optimism levels was as follows:
Very Optimistic: 31.46%
Quite Optimistic: 42.16%
Not Very Optimistic: 7.06%
Not At All Optimistic: 2.43%
The Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire sample is relatively small so do treat results with some caution.
