Abstract

The Tourist Survey is a nationwide survey that Statistics Norway (SSB) conducts on behalf of Innovation Norway. The study is based on interviews with Norwegian and foreign tourists as well as business travelers at commercial accommodations. "Tourist Survey, Summer 2015" includes analyzes of travellers who were on holidays or business trips in Norway during the summer season in 2015 (from May to August 2015).
