Capacity and occupancy of tourist accommodation establishments

The National Institute of Statistics releases statistics on the capacity and occupancy of tourist accommodation establishments for the year 2013.The "Capacity of tourist accommodation establishments" is an annual census survey and it collects the main structural information regarding the accommodation establishments in Italy.

The survey quantifies the number of establishments, bed places, bedrooms and bathrooms for hotels and similar accommodation, the number of establishments and bed places for the other collective accommodation establishments. The "Occupancy of tourist accommodation establishments" is a monthly census survey and collects mainly data on arrivals and nights spent (by residents and non-residents) at tourist accommodation establishments in Italy. The accommodation establishments are classified into two main typologies: hotels and similar accommodation and other collective accommodation establishments.

The two surveys are carried out through the local tourism bodies and according to the Eu Regulation 692/2011 concerning European statistics on tourism.
