Due to Covid-19 pandemic, some sources of data are currently not available. NISRA will continue to publish as much data as possible and will explore other indicators if the original source is affected. As a result NISRA has produced an ‘Alternative Source’ document containing a wide range of tourism related statistics produced by both NISRA and other sources which users may find useful in the absence of our regular published data. Impact of COVID-19 on Northern Ireland tourism statistics addresses specific issues with sources normally used in tourism publications.
