Employment in accomodation and food service activities (% of total employment)

The map shows the percentage of employment in the accommodation and food service activities in each Member State in 2013, with temporary, or non-permanent jobs, represented by the solid part of the small circles. Data on temporary employment is not available for Lithuania and Romania. Although tourism statistics have traditionally focused on the accommodation and food services sectors, the International Recommendations for Tourism Statistics 2008 lists ten internationally-comparable activities to improve the measurement of the tourism industry. Eurostat estimates that one in two tourism entreprises operate in the accommodation and food services sectors, which in number of persons employed represent two of every three jobs in the tourism industries. The fact that tourism industries provide their services not only to tourists but also to non-tourists further illustrates the difficulties of accurately reflecting the dimensions of this sector.
