Methodological note

The monthly data do not cover establishments with less than 10 permanent bedplaces within the following types of accommodations: private accommodations - rented rooms, dwellings, overnight accommodations, tourist farms with accommodation and company vacation facilities. Annual data also include these establishments.

Provisional data are published as indices and shares at the latest at the end of the month for the previous month. They meet the criteria of the quality of official statistical data, but do not meet the quality that can be met with additional statistical procedures.

Final data on accommodation facilities, tourist arrivals and overnight stays are published in the SI-STAT Database 55 days after the reference period. Data are based on more complete answers about the phenomenon and analyses; they are published as absolute numbers and at a more detailed level by types of accommodation facilities, statistical regions and types of municipalities (according to their touristic characteristics).
