The purpose of this survey is to find out more about residents‘ tourism practices. It covers a wide range of topics relating to leisure and business travel (destination, duration, reason, means of transport, accommodation and expenditure, etc.). The results are used by researchers, journalists, teachers and public authorities. 4,000 of the country’s residents are selected each quarter. They represent the diversity of people living in the country. You are one of them.

For methodological reasons, only people who have received an official request by post from STATEC will complete a questionnaire. They have been selected at random from the National Register of Natural Persons (more information on guichet.lu). In rare cases, the questionnaire may be completed by a relative, provided that the latter is very familiar with the person’s tourist habits and can answer for them.

Yes. The refusal to give the information within the prescribed time limit or providing incorrect information is punishable by fines (Law of STATEC of 10 July 2011).

Yes, so that the results reflect the reality of the travel habits of all residents, meaning those who have travelled and those who have not. If you have not travelled, it will only take you a few minutes to answer the questionnaire.

Your name and address will be exclusively used in order to contact you for the survey. Your personal data will not appear in the file containing your answers. Your responses will only be used for statistical purposes , and never for administrative or tax purposes. The individual information will never be disclosed. Every STATEC agent and survey staff working on behalf of STATEC is personally responsible for the strict compliance with this statistical secret. Failure to comply may result in disciplinary measures and penalties.

In Luxemburgish, French, German or English.

10 to 20 minutes depending on the number of trips you made.

If you closed the questionnaire and you had not yet answered all the questions, the data you entered remain accessible. You may continue the questionnaire by logging back to the survey using the personal access code on your invitation letter. You will be guided directly to the last question you opened.

STATEC publishes annual results in summer the year following data collection (for example, the results from the survey conducted in 2024 are available in summer 2025).The procedure is lengthy, since it requires the results for all 4 quarters of the corresponding year to be taken into consideration. In the meantime, you can consult older publications already available on the STATEC website (https://statistiques.public.lu/fr/publications.html?r=f/aem_sub_theme/tags_subtheme:statistiques\tourisme).

Participants in this survey are randomly selected to ensure a true picture of reality. When you are selected to be part of a survey, STATEC cannot replace you with someone else. You may not be removed from the sample list, for it would no longer be a random sample and the quality of the results would thus be affected.
