How are your visitor numbers compared to same quarter last year? (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.
These figures represent Quarter 3 (July - September) 2018 (Sample = 89 respondents).
Circa 70% of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire respondents stated that visitor numbers were up or similar to the comparable quarter for 2017.
The "Up" category and "Business closed this quarter" category mirrored the Scotland-wide picture, detailed below. However, a greater % of local businesses reported a decline in visitor numbers this quarter than the Scotland-wide sample.
Business Closed: 1.06%
The Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire sample is relatively small so do treat results with some caution.
