Tourism research based on secondary data
The International Passenger Survey is run by the Office for National Statistics. Further details about the survey can be found on their website. The International Passenger Survey is a continuous visitor survey of international passengers conducted at all major ports and routes into the UK. It has been running since 1961. An in-depth description of the IPS travel research methodology can be found here.
If you are looking for tourism research on inbound tourism to countries other than the UK, possible sources include the United Nations World Tourism Organisation and, particularly for European data, Tourmis.
