|The Reiseanalyse (RA) is a national survey which records and describes the holiday travel behaviour of the German-speaking population resident in Germany. Within the scope of the Reiseanalyse, more than 12,000 population-representative interviews are conducted in Germany. Of these, 7,500 are face-to-face interviews lasting around one hour and 5,000 online. The Reiseanalyse survey has been carried out yearly since 1970.|
Until 1992 the surveys were conducted by the "Studienkreis für Tourismus" in Starnberg. After they had to declare insolvency, a working group of the users was established to continue the survey; in the first two years informally, since 1995 as "Forschungsgemeinschaft Urlaub und Reisen e.V." (FUR) in Kiel. Please find further information on the FUR homepage www.reiseanalyse.de.
Until 1992 the title focuses on the year of the vacation. From 1994 onwards it is the year of the publication (e.g. "Reiseanalyse 1997" describes the travels of 1996).
