Nights spent on camp sites

The statistics "Nights spent at campsites" are a monthly summary of occupancy and capacity in Danish campsites with a minimum of 75 camping units. The statistics are broken down by nationality of the guests, permanent leased pitches and geography by NUTS 2 level. Furthermore there is a annual summary of occupancy and capacity in Danish campsites with 10-74 camping units.

Data description

These statistics have monthly information on occupancy and capacity at Danish campsites with a minimum of 75 camping units. The most important variables are the number of nights broken down by nationality and geographical area, the number of permanent leased pitches, the number of arrivals and the number of camping units. The number of nights spent at campsites illustrates something about the occupancy in the Danish campsites, including how many guests who stayed overnight and how many days in a given geographical area. The statistics furthermore tells us the nationality of the visitors.

The number of nights include short-term staying and overnights spent at permanent leased pitches. Number of nights are published every month in the table CAMP1. The same information for campsites with 10-74 camping units is published on a yearly basis in the table TURIST4. The number of camping units illustrates the development of the capacity including how many available units there are and whether there is less or more units compared with last month or last year. The range of campsites, camping units and the use of the capacity is published every month in the table CAMP2. The capacity and the use of the capacity is also published on a yearly basis in the table CAMP3. Not every campsite is open the whole year. In the table CAMP3 you can find data regarding how many campsites at the maximum and minimum has been available during the year and the maximum and minimum of camping units during the year.

Classification system

The tables in statbank are divided into different classifications and groupings. The standardized NUTS classification is used regarding breakdowns into geographical areas. The tables contain the groupings: period, geographical area, nationality, capacity, type of overnight stay and guests.

Sector coverage

The statistics belongs to sector code 55.30 in the Danish sector nomenklatur DB07 and in the international NACE, rev. 2-classification. A description of the sectors is to be found in Dansk Breachekode 2007. Some campsites may belong to another sector if the campsite is a secondary business.

Statistical concepts and definitions

Night spent: The number of guests multiplied with the duration of the stay, i.e. 2 guests stay at a camping site for 5 days which equals 10 nights spent. Arrivals is the number of guests regardless of the duration of the stay, i.e. 2 guests stay at a camping site for 5 days which equals 2 arrivals. A camping unit rented on a more permanent basis is a unit that is rented to the same guest for most of the season in a given year.
