Australian Accommodation Monitor
The Australian Accommodation Monitor (AAM) measures and tracks the performance of the Australian accommodation industry. STR, a global data analytics provider, conducts the AAM.
The AAM can provide information down to the tourism region level, as long as there are enough accommodation providers in the region to generate reliable statistical information, while ensuring the confidentiality of individual providers.
The 2017–18 AAM includes:
- number of establishments
- number of rooms
- room occupancy rate
- average daily room rate
- revenue per available room.
The AAM has a different methodology to the Australian Bureau of Statistics Survey of Tourist Accommodation STA and relies on voluntary participation – therefore data from these two collections are not comparable. More detailed information is available from STR.
