[NOTE: Regarding the monthly publication of Tourism data for the year 2019, the Regional Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM) will keep in broad lines the model followed in the previous year. However, it should be noted that Statistics Portugal (INE) starts from the reference month of January 2019 onwards to disseminate data for an aggregate comprising hotel, rural/lodging tourism and local accommodation with 10 or more beds (in terms of accommodation capacity), thus closely following the model implemented by DREM at the beginning of 2018. In Madeira, DREM also surveys the local accommodation under 10 beds, so in this press release and in the tables published by this Regional Directorate the overall total for guests and overnight stays is higher when compared to INE’s. For the bed and room occupancy rates and for revenue and personnel costs, the figures of DREM and INE are the same, since the local accommodation under 10 beds is not included in the compilation of these variables.]

Small local accommodation units contributed to slight increase in the overnight stays, while total income declined
