Supplementary notes

INSEE used the "Déclarations annuelles de données sociales" from 2011, which give information on employees - their job, pay date, number of hours worked among others - the "Enquête de fréquentation hôtelière" conducted every month in hotels of more than five rooms and the "Fichier économique enrichi", a file summary.

* Here are considered both jobs that are directly linked with tourists' stays and jobs that are related to travels and preparation (such as travel agency workers or airplane companies).
