Tourist traffic between European Union countries – panel data analysis
Languages of publication
The author examined the tourist traffic between European Union countries from 2003 till 2011, and the economic factors impacting it. The correlations between the number of tourist trips and income, price factors were calculated on the basis of Eurostat data, with the use of statistic methods and panel data analysis. The author estimated the fixed effect one way error models for each of the 28 EU countries and for the whole community. The relation of price level indices in the visited country to the same indicator in the country of the tourist’s place of living turned out a crucial and statistically significant factor. The number of trips falls with increase of this relation. The consumers travel not so willingly to countries where costs of living rise quicker than in their homeland. The effect of the PLI factor is much stronger for partner countries which are not neighbour countries. Neither the GDP per capita, nor the consumer price index turned out significant for changes in the number of tourist trips between EU countries.
