Abstract

Reviewing past research efforts facilitates improvement and understanding of research in tourism. Such an examination indicates the direction of research and methodological sophistication in the field. This article provides a description of the statistical techniques used in the Journal of Travel Research, Annals of Tourism Research and Tourism Management by reviewing these journals over a 10-year period. Descriptive statistics represent the majority of techniques employed. Regression/correlation, models, analysis of variance, nonparametric techniques, and factor analysis, in descending order, are the next most commonly used methods. Examination of articles in the three major tourism journals reveals opportunities for improved understanding and use of statistical analyses. -from Authors
