The "Survey of International
Air Travelers" program provides comprehensive, comparable
survey data available on overseas travel patterns,
characteristics and spending patterns on international
travelers to and from the U.S. The survey is conducted on
randomly selected international flights of major airlines
that voluntarily participate in the program.
Statistics from the survey are an invaluable source for
planners and marketers and the information can be used to
analyze behavior of specific visitor segments. Office of
Travel and Tourism Industries surveys between
69,000-95,000 air travelers per year.
The survey results are weighted so they represent the
international travel populations of U.S. residents and
non-residents based upon Immigration and Naturalization
Service data. This provides a uniquely valuable aspect of
this survey - the expansion of results to represent the
entire visitor population.
