Part Five covers ‘Evaluation for policy making’. The measurement of the size, contribution and impacts on the economy of tourism have been areas of major development in tourism economics over the past decade or so. An area which has seen extensive empirical work has been the measurement of the size of the tourism industry by means of tourism satellite accounts (TSAs). Several countries have now incorporated these as part of their national accounts. The measurement problem stems from the tourism industry really being parts of other industries, rather than a single defined industry in itself.

Tisdell argues that total economic valuations can play a useful role in determining the economically optimal allocation of resources. While the economic value of natural resources for tourism can provide a strong case for their conservation, this case can often be bolstered if account is also taken of off-site non-tourism values of a natural site. Hence, those who want the site conserved for tourism purposes rather than developed would find it worthwhile not only to stress the tourism value of the natural site but also its other economic values as well.

Land areas which would be best left in a relatively natural state for tourism and other purposes may, for example, be developed for uses such as agriculture or housing. From an economics perspective, rational decisions about resource use or allocation require appropriate economic valuations to be made about their alternative uses. From an operational viewpoint, economic valuation might be best based on monetary values. Money enables economic values to be expressed in a single unit of measurement and facilitates the comparison of economic values.
