To assist in forecasting the supply of tourist accommodation, by number of rooms, by type of accommodation and star grading (where applicable), for major tourism regions.


The survey collects data on the construction of tourist
accommodation from project owners/developers. The scope of the collection is tourist accommodation development projects with an approved completion value of $2 million or more. (Earlier surveys adopted a cut-off of $250,000 for approved completion value.) Owners/developers of these projects are sent a questionnaire.
