The Competitive Position of Tourism in the Northeast, 1972-1977

The shift-share approach is used to examine changes in the competitive position nationally of tourism in the Northeast, using lodging receipts as an index of tourism. The Northeast share of national lodging receipts, which declined from 1972 to 1977, was heavily influenced by a lack of substantive growth in New England and the Middle Atlantic regions. This parallels population trends, but does not necessarily reflect a dismal future for tourism in the Northeast.
