*** For 2002 and 2003, the market share and traveler characteristics data is based upon the combined 2001-2002 or 2002-2003 sample for Sweden. No estimates would have been available if only the 2002 or 2003 data was used. The combined sample was weighted to the actual 2002 or 2003 arrivals data to produce a combined estimate for 2002 and 2003.
 
**** Not displayed due to low respondent base for this survey year.
 
***** Variance due to rounding.
