Tourists do not make travel decisions in a vacuum. The decision to spend money on tourism occurs in the context of the other potential uses of discretionary resources and their corresponding values or utilities. This study has therefore researched the conjoint decision of allocating and spending discretionary resources through the conduct of a choice experiment so that the trade-offs involved could be empirically assessed. The data provides an insight into how each type of discretionary expenditure is valued and how each type competes for a share of the discretionary expenditure ‘pie’. We discuss the results with an emphasis on the  implications for tourism.

The report develops tools for measuring and enhancing the yield from tourism at the business, regional and national level. It clarifies the different concepts of tourism yield. Different stakeholders (operators, governments, community, researchers etc.) mean different things by ‘yield’ and this presents a barrier to communication and policy discussion.

The primary aim of the report is to develop tools for measuring and enhancing the yield from tourism at the business, regional and national levels. This overall objective subsumes several more specific objectives: First, to clarify the different concepts of tourism yield. Second, to develop operational measures of yield at the level of the firm and at destination, regional, state and national levels. The final objective involves discussion and analysis of the policy implications of the study.
