Statistical quality
The Great Britain Day Visits Survey (GBDVS) has been undertaken jointly with Visit England and Visit Scotland and is the source of official statistics on day visits by British residents to destinations throughout Britain. 2017 is the seventh year of the survey. It is based on a target of 35,000 online interviews throughout Britain in 52 weekly waves during the course of the year, with the Wales resident sample boosted to approximately 5,000 in order to permit more detailed secondary analysis in due course. Owing to the shift from reporting year to date figures to reporting 12 month rolling totals, this release is not comparable with releases published before May 2016. This release is comparable with releases published after May 2016, and with the releases published by Visit England, available on the Visit Britain website.
