Likelihood of tourists to visit Britain following the EU referendum 2018, by age

This statistic illustrates the likelihood of international travelers to visit Britain following the decision of the EU referendum ('brexit') in 2016, according to a survey conducted across nine international markets in March 2018. The results are broken down by age. Across all the age groups, the majority responded that the referendum result made no difference to their likelihood to visit Britain, with a higher share of those over the age of 45 agreeing so. Of 18 to 24 year olds, a net of 18 percent said they would be less likely to visit Britain compared to 22 percent who said they would be more likely to visit.

Following the referendum decision, would you say you are more likely to visit Britain in the future, less likely, or does it make no difference?
