Changes in the target group of the accommodation statistics

The target group of the accommodation statistics has been reviewed and a few accommodation establishments operating in the industries of hotels and hostels were added to it starting from data concerning January 2017. The effect of the review is around 2.5 per cent of the total number of overnight stays from 2017 onwards. Because of the review, the data starting from 2017 are not fully comparable with those for earlier years. The data for January 2018 are comparable with the data for January 2017.
