The Tourism Economy Dominance Index (TEDI) is a measure of the concentration of tourism type businesses that are within a county. The county is the most efficient overall measure of tourism activity. The statistics gathered for this index are very detailed, so often, the information by municipality is suppressed. However, in some cases, an index can be prepared for a city, if it is large enough.
If you are interested in this information as a city, county, development district, chamber or other tourism promoting organization, this index can assist you in determining how to better grow your tourism component in your community.
If you are a business owner or developer looking to expand into lesser known, but still strong tourism markets, TEDI can guide you to where your next best location may be.
