Accommodation Sectors

If you are interested in a specific accommodation sector, individual sector reports are also available in the sections below. Available to download are annual and monthy reports by sector. 

How To Take Part

The value of the data from the SAOS is very much dependent on the participation of accommodation businesses in providing their occupancy data, and we would very much like more businesses to take part. In return for providing their data in easy to use formats, participants get early access to monthly data, individual occupancy analysis and access to an online results portal.
