​Tourism Satellite Account

The Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) is a comprehensive, consistent and flexible scheme that is based on definitions, classifications, and accounting rules derived from and harmonized with the System of National Accounts, and is an official, objective and reliable measurement of the economic contribution of tourism. More information here.

The satellite account is a study that is closely linked to the central framework of national accounting and of the balance of payments, and is therefore a specialized extension of that framework, which allows measuring the contribution of tourism to the economy of a nation. Likewise, it enables identification of economic activities that produce goods and services that are intended for tourists.

Another analysis of the Central Bank generated the Input-Output Matrix (IOM) for tourism, which makes it possible to measure indirect effects of tourism on the economy.

Data from the TSA-CR and IOM-Tourism, are available for the 2012-2016 period and will be updated every year.
