The National Surveys team manages the International Visitor Survey (IVS) and the National Visitor Survey (NVS), releasing quarterly survey results. The IVS and NVS are the most comprehensive source of information on the characteristics and travel patterns of Australia’s inbound, domestic and outbound markets and inform not only government, but the nation’s tourism industry. Data from these surveys are key inputs to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) Tourism Satellite Accounts (TSA), as part of their National Accounts, and to TRA's Tourism Forecasts. The National Surveys team also manages delivery of TRA’s data subscription services, Online Data, and Online Data for Students.
