International Passenger Survey 2013

The International Passenger Survey (IPS) aims to collect data on both credits and debits for the travel account of the Balance of Payments; provide detailed visit information on overseas visitors to the United Kingdom (UK) for tourism policy; and collect data on international migration. The data cover four subject areas; termed 'Air miles';'Alcohol'; 'Qregtown' and 'Qcontact'. One file is produced each quarter per subject area; and the dataset updated quarterly. These files can be joined together using the variables YEAR;SERIAL; FLOW and QUARTER. The depositor recommends that only expert users who are very familiar with the coding and weighting structures use these data; as limited support is available. Some considerable understanding of the data is required before meaningful analyses can be made; care must be taken when performing time series operations as codes can vary from year to year and not all variables from one year's dataset are used in other years.
