I need some data from the book Yearbook of Tourism Statistics - 2004
Edition. I need to know how many tourists from the countries: Norway,
Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, Germany visited the countries:
Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, Kroatia and Slovenia in the years
1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002. I know the data is in the book because I
have had a look at the sample pages at
Please do not use any other sources, like EuroStat, because they seem
to have incomplete data.

The data at the World Tourism Organization site can be accessed a
country at a time, but there is a small fee for each country.

For instance, the data for Italy include statistics for the numbers of
visitors from all the countries you inquired about.  For example:

Norwegian Tourists visiting Italy:

1999--   91,667
2000-- 113,904
2001-- 106,488
2002-- 103,644

Data are provided for 2003 as well.  

I can provide you detailed instructions for accessing the information
yourself from the WTO site, and I would suggest that as the best
possible answer for your question.

However, if you would like me to extract the numbers for you (as was
done for Norway/Italy, above), I would have to ask you to raise the
price of your question to $85, in order to cover the cost of
purchasing various reports from the WTO site.  Note, however, that I
can only provide very limited amounts of information from these
reports, since they are protected by copyright.

Your best bet would be to purchase the reports yourself, which you
could then immediately view online.  It's also cheaper that way!

Let me know how you would like to proceed on this.

Thanks a lot for finding me that website. All you need to do to answer
this question now is to give me the address of the website, and I will
go and get the data myself.

It's all pretty self-explanatory, but if you run into any snags, just
