The statistics dates back to 1986 and has been changed during time, why comparison between absolute figures over time is difficult, while comparison between changes in percentages is more feasible.

  • Before 1990, the statistics covered only the rental in the main season.
  • From 1990 the statistics covered a split year: Beginning of October - end of September.
  • From 1998 the annual statistics covered a calendar year.

From 2008 the statistics id dived into municipality, sub-regional and regional levels.

From 2012 is no longer asked for number of houses at disposal each calendar week. Instead of is asked about houses/apartments at disposal during the year made up the 1st of May the census year (including rentals momentarily not available.

From 2012 the respondent can either (and preferred) report number of person-nights spend, or optionally estimate average number of guests per house-week.

For the key figures the statistics are comparable over time. However, in 2011 figures for nights spend 2010 was increased by 647.000, because of revised figures from respondents. Consequently figures from before 2010 are not directly comparable with figures from 2010 and onwards.
