Abstract

In the recent years, Turkey has known as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The assessment of tourism performance is clearly one of the most important and profitable parts of increasing tourism industry. This paper reports the tourists' impacts of 35 different countries on the Turkey's tourist industry from 2006 to 2010. A recent robust model in Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is applied as well as Windows Analysis (WA) to identify the countries which have most impacts on Turkey's tourism industry. It is illustrated which one of countries with less number of tourists, less accommodation time and less number of overnight staying, had spent more money in package and individual journeys in Turkey. The proposed methodology not only illustrates how a country is able to measure its tourism industry, but it also guides how it can improve its tourism industry in order to improve its receipts.
