Abstract

This paper aims to describe the sample design and the survey plan used in the sur-vey on incoming tourism in Sicily and Sardinia. The specific goals of the survey are related: to the measurement and the analysis of un-observed tourism; to the evaluation of tourist mobility within the two Islands; to the analysis of some key-factors related to the holyday experience of tourists. The sample design was ori-ented to estimate tourist mobility separately for the two Islands, i.e. Sicily and Sardinia. The problems in sampling human mobile populations derive from the absence of a list of units component units (frame), that constitute the population of interest e dal fatto che la popolazione di interesse non è facilemnte distinguibile rispetto ad altre (non oggetto di studio). Despite these issues are well-known in literature under the broader categories of hard to reach, or hidden, or mobile populations, etc., the methodological solutions and most of all the empirical applications in tourism studies are almost poor. The sampling strategy undertaken to analyse non resident tourists leaving Sicily and Sardinia at the end of their vacation is a complex, multi-stage, stratified Time-Location Sampling (TLS). Under this perspective, the availability of information on the distribution of tourism flows by time (months) and space (departure places) for the two Islands was a fundamental prerequisite for the implementation of the sample design.
