Fundació d'Estudis Turístics Costa Daurada [Costa Daurada Tourism Studies Foundation]

The Costa Daurada Tourism Studies Foundation (FETCD) was created in 1999 to promote a permanent and shared space for research, training, assessment and debate in matters of tourism to facilitate rapprochement between the academic sector and the professional sector.

The FETCD created the Costa Daurada Tourism Observatory in 2001 to centralise the production of statistics on tourism and to have a useful, reliable and flexible instrument for generating statistics.

Production of statistics

enquestaOn the one hand, the Observatory engages in regular operations on the characteristics of demand and the occupation of establishments in the area of the Costa Daurada and Terres de l'Ebre.

On the other, it carries out ad hoc statistical operations at the request of the institutions that are part of the Observatory, as well as other institutions, organisations and companies.

The regular operations carried out periodically by the Tourism Observatory of the Costa Daurada are:

  1. Situation analysis: An operation for generating situation statistics on the occupation of tourist establishments (hotels, camp sites, apartments and rural tourism establishments).
  2. Characterisation of demand: It focuses on collecting information on the characteristics of the tourists that visit the Costa Daurada and the Terres de l'Ebre by surveying tourists directly on the coast and in inland municipalities.
