Forecasting international regional arrivals in Canada

Vu, Thi Thuy Mui (2010) Forecasting international regional arrivals in Canada. Research Master thesis, Victoria University.


Considerable research has been done on comparative research models for forecasting tourist arrivals nationally. However, hardly any published study has tested regional international arrival forecasting accuracy. This study focuses upon forecasting arrival to the main regions of entry to Canada, using quarterly international arrival flows into the provinces of Canada from 2000Q1 to 2007Q4. The aim of this study is to determine whether accurate international regional forecasts can be derived; also to assess whether time-series or regression based models derive the most accurate forecasts; and further develop the theory of demand forecasting for regional tourism demand forecasting.
