In order to plan successfully, accurate forecasts of tourist's flows are required.This book sets out to compare the accuracy of seven forecasting methods--six univariate time series techniques and econometrics--when applied to international tourism demand data. The estimated parameters in the econometric models also permits an evaluation of the impact of factors such as income, prices, exchange rates and currency restrictions on tourism demand.< B> Modeling and Forecasting Demand in Tourism< /B> is of considerable value and interest to both academics and research students, as well as those practitioners in the fields of tourism, travel, hospitality and consultancy who make decisions or give advice on the basis of forecasts.
