Tourism trends – Stats and Facts

Analyse the Statistical information

         Refer to Figure 1. Construct a line graph to show the increase in tourism numbers from the 1990-91 summer season to 2005-06 summer season.

         Calculate the % increase in tourist numbers between 1990-91 and 2000-01 and between 2000-1 and 2005-06.

Extend the trend line on your graph for another 5 years and estimate the likely number of tourists for 2010-2011 summer season.

  • Refer to Figure 2. What currently are the two most popular modes of travel used by tourists to view Antarctica? If adventure tourism increases in numbers, as it is predicted to do, which category do you think is most likely to undergo a significant increase in growth? Support your answer with a reason.

Refer to Figure 4. Construct a pie graph to show the main areas visited by tourists. Provide three reasons why the Antarctic Peninsular is the more popular destination.

  • Refer to Figure 3. Suggest why Antarctica is such an expensive place to visit. Why do you think the lowest price trips departing from New Zealand are more expensive than the lowest price trips departing from South America?
