Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment

Definitions

Domestic tourism: This measures people who travel further than 40 km from their place of residence (and are not on a main commuting route).

Limitations of the data

MRTEs are provisional until the TSA for the March year are published. Then MRTEs will be revised to align with that data source. For example, MRTEs for the March 2017 year will be updated in October when TSA 2017 is published. Small corrections may occur in historical series if they are identified.

Method of collection/Data provider

The Monthly Regional Tourism Estimates (MRTEs) provide an estimate of regional monthly expenditure on tourism from both international and domestic consumers.
Effectively, the MRTEs are a regionalisation of the Tourism Satellite Account, with airfares and education fees removed.
The totals of the MRTEs align with the Tourism Satellite Account up to the latest Year ending March, by design. Beyond March, the MRTEs are based on observed changes in the value of card transactions i.e. they are a projection off the YE March base.
