How does your turnover compare 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.
63 respondents from Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire gave feedback on Quarter 4 2018 (October to December inclusive).
Circa 70% of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire respondents stated that spend was up or similar to the comparable quarter for 2017, a figure which mirrors the national picture. Indeed, all categories: "Up", "Similar", "Down" and "Business closed this quarter" closely mirror the national picture for turnover this quarter.
The national figures are presented below:
Business Closed: 8.80%
The Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire sample is relatively small so do treat results with some caution.
