The Ministry of Tourism’s Research and Statistics Department collects and processes data from proprietary surveys conducted at various ports of entry (i.e. airports, cruise ship ports, marinas) in addition to gathering secondary statistics from tourism partners. These figures are placed into databases and are used to provide relevant information to internal and external clients.
The Research and Statistics Department also carries out ad hoc surveys which assist the Ministry of Tourism and industry partners to evaluate performance, and provide answers that help plan tactics and/or strategies.
