The tourism account data for the years 2006 and 2007 are based on preliminary national accounts data published in January 2009. Data for years 1995-2005 are according to the previously published national accounts supply and use tables. National accounts time series are currently under revision, which is why a supply and use table concerning the year 2006 has exceptionally not been published. The tourism account data for the years 2006 and 2007 are fully comparable with national accounts data. The national accounts time series revision to be implemented in 2010 will have an impact also on the tourism account time series.

The key tourism account data have been published as database tables on the internet pages of tourism account and can be obtained from there in the desired format.
