Canary Islanders Speak Up: ISTAC Launches Tourism Perception Survey

The opinion of residents matters

The Canary Islands Statistics Institute (ISTAC) has launched a new module within the Survey of Socioeconomic Habits and Confidence (ECOSOC) to gauge residents’ perceptions of tourism in the archipelago.

What do they want to know?

The study seeks to explore the Canary Islanders’ assessment of the economic, social, cultural, and environmental impacts of tourism on the islands. The information collected will be essential for the Government of the Canary Islands and other institutions to plan, evaluate, and implement social policies that benefit the citizens.

Who participates?

The survey is aimed at people over 18 years old residing in the Canary Islands. 2,400 people will be interviewed each quarter, distributed throughout the territory of the autonomous community.

Why is it important?

Tourism is a crucial activity for the Canarian economy, but it also has its challenges. The residents’ opinion is essential to finding a balance between the benefits of tourism and the quality of life on the islands.
