This paper estimates the economy-wide economic impacts of tourism for various market segments. Moving beyond volume (arrivals) versus value (direct tourism expenditure), the author examines various economy-wide measures of economic impact. Different visitor spending has different flow-on effects, depending on each sector's taxation rate, import quotient and capital-labour ratio. It is important for destination marketing organizations and tourism policy makers to factor in these characteristics when considering the full economic impact of tourism expenditure.
