The economic impacts of tourism are an important topic, to policy-makers as well as entrepreneurs. Policy-makers often want to know how much money tourists spend in a certain region and what this means in terms of added value and employment. Entrepreneurs need to be able to present the impacts of tourism in an efficient and reliable manner. In this...
Article
In tourism management traditional Input-Output models are often applied to calculate economic impacts, including employment impacts. This model implies that increases in output are translated into proportional increases in labour, implying constant labour productivity. In Non-Linear Input Output (NLIO) models final demand changes lead to substituti...
Article

In Malaysia, a country that ranks among the world’s most recognized medical tourism destinations, medical tourism is identified as a potential economic growth engine for both medical and non-medical sectors. A state-level analysis of economic impacts is important...

In tourism and recreation management it is still common practice to apply traditional input–output (IO) economic impact models, despite their well-known limitations. In this study the authors analyse the usefulness of applying a non-linear input–output (NLIO) model, in which price-induced input substitution is accounted for. For large changes in fi...

Conference Paper

Tourism contributes to the economic development of many European cities (Bock, 2015). Although this economic development is attractive for cities, it is questionable whether this development is sustainable (e.g. Jurowski, Uysal, & Williams, 1997, McKercher & Prideaux, 2014, Newsome, Moore, & Dowling, 2012), from an economic, social and ecological p...

Introduction Overtourism’ is a relatively new term in the public and academic debate on negative consequences of tourism. However, the phenomenon itself is not a new one, as problematic forms of tourism crowding and their effects on local communities and environment have been studied for decades. Yet, there is much evidence that the character of...
Book
The subject area Regional Economics has become topical. This means that in economic analyses the production factor 'space' is of increasing importance. This study book aims to integrate space in the area of General Economics in an analytical way. Models and their applications play a major role in the book's approach. The subject of regional economi...
Article
In this article, we calculate the economic impact of pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in the NUTS 2 region Galicia (Spain) in 2010. This economic impact is relevant to policymakers and other stakeholders dealing with religious tourism in Galicia. The analysis is based on the Input-Output model. Location Quotient formulas are used to derive the...
Chapter
In this chapter we compare four methods to generate a regional input-output table (RIOT). A RIOT is a requirement for a regional input-output (IO) analysis and any over- or underestimation of regional input-output coefficients (RIOCs), contained in the RIOT, can lead to over- or underestimation of economic impacts. One category of methods that can...

There are substantial differences between models of the economic impacts of tourism. Not only do the nature and precision of results vary, but data demands, complexity and underlying assumptions also differ. Often, it is not clear whether the models chosen are appropriate for the specific situation to which they are applied. The goal of this articl...
Article
This book explores the conditions needed to make public and private investments in healthy cities effective. It argues that three conditions are essential: citizen empowerment, corporate responsibility and a coordinated improvement of urban health. The book uses case studies from around the world to show the importance of these conditions, and how...
Article

Already in the 1980s industrial tourism - people visiting operational companies - has been identified as a growing segment of regional tourism industries. Since then the pressure on companies to open their doors for other members of the society has only increased. Several scholars (e.g. Frew, 2000; Soyez, 1993; Mitchell & Orwig, 2002) have discusse...

How are the medical and long-term care needs of different transnationally-mobile populations being supported and met in an era of intensified global mobility? This project examines the key trends challenging conventional nationally-containerised thinking about sources, directions, subjects and relations of care by paying attention to transnational configurations of formal (i.e., state, private and voluntary) and informal (i.e., family and community) care provision.
