Alternative Source

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 publish data.  Impact of COVID-19 on Northern Ireland tourism statistics addresses specific issues with sources normally used in tourism publications.

Latest statistics:


NISRA Tourism Statistics have developed a dashboard containing the alternative data sources.
