Statistics - guest nights in Umeå, Umeåregionen, Västerbotten and Sweden
The hospitality industry is a mix of many different industries and operations which makes it challenging to define and measure the industry as a whole with its activity and effects. One thing that can be measured is guest nights. One guest night is an overnight stay bought at a commercial accommodation facility. Accommodation facilities are to report each month to the Swedish Central Bureau of Statistics (SCB), number of guest nights and from which countries the guests are from. SCB, the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and BI South have prduced a function where everyone can access all major parts of guest nights reports in Sweden. This is based on cooperation between Sweden's regional tourism organizations. Read more about guest nights here (in Swedish)
