In an effort to meet industry demand for more timely release of international visitor data the U.S. Department of Commerce, through the Tourism Industries office released a series of analyses and nearly 70 different summary tables today.

"This is the earliest release of this detailed data by the Department of Commerce. It's timeliness is especially useful in order to provide the U.S. industry with the most current snap shot of the state of our tourism exports prior to Pow Wow, the largest showcase of American tourism product organized by the Travel Industry Association of America" said Leslie R. Doggett.
