About the DTS
Through this page you can access a range of information about the Domestic Travel Survey.
The Domestic Travel Survey draws on a sample of between 15,000 New Zealand residents per year to represent the behaviour of all domestic travellers in New Zealand.
The Domestic Travel Survey provides accurate, quarterly information on the number and type of trips, characteristics, behaviour and expenditure of domestic visitors.
Domestic Travel Survey data is recorded using particular terms and groupings (classifications). This section provides a list of those definitions and classifications to aid you in interpreting the data.
Domestic Travel Survey results from the year to September 2009 form the beginning of a new data series, which uses an improved methodology and provides more accurate data.
