Article
The use of composite indicators for the evaluation of sustainable tourism is an option widely used in the literature. Among the works proposed, two major contrasting approaches can be distinguished, differentiated by the degree of compensation allowed between the indicators of the starting system. On the one hand, there are synthetic indicators wit...
Article
This paper presents a system of Sustainable Tourism Tags to evaluate the management of tourist destinations, using the information from a composite indicator called the Differential Dynamic Index. This vectorial indicator has two components: one dynamic which shows the advance or regress in time of each destination in terms of sustainability; the o...
Article
How to assess sustainable tourism is a critical issue. Many static sustainability measures have been proposed in the literature, however new dynamic methods are needed to grade the course towards the target of sustainable tourism. In this context, this paper presents a vectorial composite indicator, called Differential Dynamic Index (DDI), that is...
Article
This paper introduces an approach to assessing the sustainability of tourism that takes into account the progress made towards greater sustainability, as well as the current level of sustainability. The Vectorial Dynamic Composite Indicator is based on the goal programming technique. This composite indicator has two components (static and dynamic)....
Article
The tourism sector in Europe faces important challenges which it must deal with to promote its future development. In this context, the European Commission considers that two key issues must be addressed. On the one hand, a better base of socio-economic knowledge about tourism and its relationship with the environment is needed, and, on the other h...
Conference Paper

The need for quantitative information in tourism planning processes on sustainability goals is now a widely accepted issue. Indicators of sustainable tourism have emerged as one of the tools of most practical potential in this field, both for the planner to the sector agents. However, much of the existing proposals in this area used indicators to...
Article
First, we would like to thank Professor Tofallis for having pointed out the advantages of a new DEA-inspired model, which considers a multiplicative aggregation scheme, and for linking his viewpoint with our recent paper on JORS (Blancas et al, 2013).

This paper highlights the complexity of the franchise partner selection process from a franchisee's perspective. The purpose of this article is, firstly, to propose the definition of a system of indicators which include all the relevant information which the potential franchisee should take into consideration when choosing a chain secondly, to obta...
Article
Composite indicators (CIs), constructed on the basis of the 'benefit of the doubt' criterion, are characterized by endogenously determined vectors of weights. In this paper, a new procedure to construct CIs is proposed in an attempt to overcome the main weakness of this family of procedures: the determination of an individual weighting vector for e...
Chapter
En este capítulo queremos mostrar el potencial de los sistemas de indicadores y de los indicadores sintéticos para evaluar la sostenibilidad de los destinos de turismo rural. La información que proporcionan estos instrumentos permite a los gestores turísticos diseñar estrategias de actuación necesarias para corregir las debilidades del destino y po...
Article
In recent years we have observed a tendency to define models of tourism based on diversity, quality and sustainability. These parameters influence how tourism destinations are managed, with the involvement of local agents being essential to ensure the implementation of appropriate strategies for a specific location or region. As a result the manage...
Article
This paper proposes an indicators system to analyse the sustainability of tourist activity at rural destinations in countries with a consolidated tourism sector. The proposed system aims at providing tourist managers and policy-makers with information to better understand the transition to sustainability at specific destinations and to encourage th...
Article
In this paper we present a new global evaluation methodology for constructing composite indicators. Given the limitations in the construction of wellbeing indicators that include a gender perspective, this paper proposes separate measures for men and women, using new linear programming models to improve the traditional Data Envelopment Analysis mod...

Article
This paper presents a critical analysis of some of the techniques which are ap-plied in practice to obtain composite indicators from a previous sub-indicator system. In studying each methodology, we identify the advantages and dis-advantages associated with them, paying particular attention to issues such as reducing the subjectivity associated wit...
Article
This paper proposes a methodology for obtaining a synthetic indicator to facilitate decision making in practical situations. It is based on goals provided by the users, which will be included in a synthetic indicator by a goal-programming approach. This methodology facilitates interpreting the values of the synthetic indicator, and thus helps in th...
Article
This paper introduces an indicator system to evaluate sustainability in established coastal tourism destinations, applying the recommendations and definitions of the World Tourism Organization (WTO). We also develop a new synthetic indicator to simplify the measurement of sustainability and facilitate the comparative analysis of destination ranking...

RESUMEN En la planificación del turismo rural las Administraciones Públicas suelen olvidar un concepto clave al priorizar la concesión de subvenciones: la localización espacial de la actividad. El propósito de este trabajo es definir un modelo de jerarquización zonal multicriterio que permita incorporar la localización espacial de la actividad tu...

This paper examines the situation of women in the different socioeconomic areas of Spain using an alternative methodology. Rather than just providing a descriptive analysis, we combine statistics and multicriteria analysis techniques to obtain a ranking of Spanish regions according to their level of equality or inequality regarding women.
