** 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 Ireland. 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 a combined estimate for 2004.

**** Not displayed due to low respondent base for this survey year.

***** Variance due to rounding.
