A Change in Methodology:

Tourism Research Australia implemented a “dual-frame methodology” to the National Visitor Survey (NVS), effective from January 2014. This improved technique means the NVS telephone interviews are now conducted via both landlines and mobile phones, ensuring the NVS sample includes the growing number of “mobile phone-only” households. Due to this, yearly comparisons are a guide only.
