Methodological information, definitions: Within the scope of the monthly overnight statistics, the arrivals and overnight stays are provided by rented tourist accommodation establishments in those communities which have more than 1 000 overnight stays per year. Of the total of 2 100 Austrian communities, this concerns around 1 550 reporting communities, which transmit data monthly to Statistics Austria.
