Tourism Data Use Case

Supplementary Accommodation Statistics


Dashboard Supplementary Accommodation Statistics

The dashboard below visualises the supplementary accommodation statistics (PASTA). The statistics are produced quarterly at national level on the basis of a sample survey. The statistics cover commercially run holiday homes and collective accommodation. The data collected concern the supply and demand of this type of accommodation. More information on PASTA is available on the website of the Swiss Federal Statistical Office (BFS).

The dashboard divides the data into holiday homes, collective accommodation and camping sites. Each type consists of two pages, the first providing information on supply and demand and the second on the number of arrivals and overnight stays. Page 6 (Booking platform statistics from Eurostat) shows Eurostat data on overnight stays booked on OTA’s such as Airbnb, Booking Expedia and Tripadvisor. Page 7 (Overview of one region) gives an overview of all the supplementary accommodation statistics for an individual selectable region.

How to use the dashboard

Below are some tips on how to interact with the Dashboard to find answers to your questions:

  • Click the rectangle icon in the bottom right corner to view the Dashboard full screen.
  • Use the navigation at the top to access the different pages of the dashboard.
  • The dashboard has filters that you can use to select specific data to display.
  • Move your mouse over the information and numbers on the dashboard. Wherever the pointer changes to a hand, you can interact with the dashboard and make selections.
  • Hovering over a time dimension (e.g. year) sometimes displays a plus/minus sign. Clicking on the icons allows you to view the data in finer/coarser temporal granularity.
  • Use the drop-down menus to view specific metrics.
