Background Notes

 

Periodicity

Monthly - rolling three month release.

Scope

Overseas Travel.

Coverage

This release covers Overseas Travel into and out of the Republic of Ireland, however travel by residents of Northern Ireland into or out of the Republic of Ireland or domestic travel within the Republic of Ireland is excluded.

Data Collection

Data from the Country of Residence Survey (CRS) is used in this release.  This survey is conducted at Dublin, Cork, Shannon, Knock and Kerry airports and Rosslare, Dun Laoghaire, Ringaskiddy and Dublin seaports.  Residency data is collected from passengers by a Central Statistics Office (CSO) interviewer.  Surveys are also conducted on behalf of the CSO at Holyhead Port by the UK's Office of National Statistics.

Sample Design

A sample of flights and sailings is selected to facilitate proper representation of airport/seaport pairings, day, night, week day and weekend flights/sailings.

On the selected flights/sailings for the CRS, a 1 in 5 (20%) systematic sample of passengers is selected and their country of residence is recorded.

Sample results are grossed to total passenger numbers travelling for each airport or seaport pairing, as provided by the airports and ferry companies.

Where there is no survey coverage in a period for an airport/seaport pairing, results are imputed using the 'nearest neighbour' imputation methodology.

Sample Size

The sample size for the Overseas Travel release in respect of the three month period October - December 2013 was just under 86,500 passengers.

Seasonal Adjustment

Seasonally adjusted quarterly data is available in Table 8.  Trip numbers are subject to a high degree of seasonality.  These seasonal fluctuations do not affect annual comparisons but they do affect monthly or quarterly comparisons.  Typically trips are at their highest during the summer months, although there are also clear peaks around Christmas and Easter.  To facilitate interpretation of underlying trends, trip numbers are adjusted to remove these seasonal trends.  Seasonal adjustment is conducted using the direct seasonal adjustment approach.  Under this approach each individual series is independently adjusted each month, e.g. aggregate series are adjusted without reference to the component series.  Seasonal adjustment models are developed for each series based on unadjusted data from January 2000 to the current period.  These models are then applied to the entire series.  Seasonal factors are updated each quarter. 

The adjustments are completed by applying the X-12-ARIMA model, developed by the U.S. Census Bureau to the unadjusted data.  This methodology estimates seasonal factors while also taking into consideration factors that impact on the quality of the seasonal adjustment such as:

  • Calendar effects, e.g. the timing of Easter (see definition (5)).
  • Outliers, temporary changes and level shifts in the series.

Rounding

Individual figures have been rounded independently and the sum of the component items may therefore not necessarily add to the totals shown.

Reliability of Results 

Estimation of survey results using the above sampling design introduces a statistical variability which would not be present if all passengers from every flight/sailing had been sampled.  This means that the survey results are best estimates based on the information collected for the sample.

This variability is expressed by the standard error calculation.  The standard error gives the relative size of the 'sampling error' (variability) present in an estimate compared with the estimate itself.  In general, estimates can be said to have a relative precision of twice their standard error.

The effect of sampling error is greater for small estimates and may, in particular, make it more difficult to compare figures for different time periods.  Standard error estimates in respect of the major Area of Residence categories for Quarter 1 to Quarter 4 2013 calendar quarters are presented in the following tables.

In general, the more detailed the classification provided the greater the standard error of the estimates.  In the derivation of the results, the assumption was made that non-respondents had similar characteristics and activity levels to those respondents in the same stratification cell.  This assumption, which is usual in surveys such as this, may introduce some slight bias into the results.  Moreover, although every effort was made to ensure that the information collected is correct, it is possible that some minor non-sampling errors remain undetected.

Airport Pairings

The CSO "Airport Pairings" database contains information on every direct flight in and out of the nine Irish airports on a monthly basis.  December 2013 passenger figures will be added to the database from early March 2014.  For details please go to http://cso.ie/shorturl.aspx/15

Definitions

(1) Trips

The data presented in this report is in terms of trip numbers.  A trip is defined as a journey (usually including the return) from one place to another.

(2) Visitor

The definition of Visitor used in these surveys is based on that agreed with Eurostat, the European Statistical Office.  A Visitor is defined as 'any person travelling to a place other than that of his/her usual environment for less than twelve months and whose main purpose is other than the exercise of an activity remunerated from within the place visited'.  However, as the CRS does not establish the reason for an individual's trip or length of stay, those travelling for reason of remuneration or for more than one year to a country cannot be excluded.  Therefore, trips may include those travelling for paid work.  Commercial Drivers travelling on sea routes are excluded.

(3) Country of Residence

Country of Residence is defined as the country in which the person has resided during the past year.

(4) Transit/Transfer Passengers

Transit passengers are defined as those who make a stop at an airport without any particular purpose other than being en route to another destination.  These passengers generally do not disembark from their aircraft and are not covered by the Country of Residence Survey.

Transfer passengers or 'connecting passengers' are also defined as those who make a stop at an airport without any particular purpose other than being en route to another destination.  However, unlike transits, transfer passengers disembark the aircraft and pass through the airport en route to their connecting flight.  Such passengers may be surveyed for the Country of Residence Survey and are thus included in the estimates for trips.

(5) Timing of Easter

Easter falls each year on a Sunday between March 22nd and April 25th, inclusively.  In 2013 Easter Sunday fell on March 31st, while in 2012 it fell on April 8th.  Trip numbers each year are greatly influenced by when Easter falls.

2013 - 31st March

2012 - 8th April

2011 - 24th April

2010 - 4th April
