Our methodology


Dashboards provide headline impacts across three scenarios in light of the global coronavirus pandemic:


Baseline - Tourism Economics' central forecast that is available for Global Tourism Service subscribers.


Upside - assumes that the virus comes under control more quickly, helped by effective treatments, where travel restrictions are eased within in a quicker timeframe supported by a stronger economic recovery.


Downside - covers eventualities that the pandemic continues for a more prolonged period of time, with lengthier travel restrictions, deeper economic impacts and weakened consumer sentiment.
