** Only the census regions, states, and cities are displayed that have a statistically reliable respondent base for the survey year(s).

*** For 2004, the market share and traveler characteristics data is based upon the combined 2004-2003

sample for Venezuela. No estimates would have been available if only the 2004 data was used.

The combined sample was weighted to the actual 2004 arrivals data to produce an estimate for 2004.
