The table below shows the number of visitors in the UK and their average spending from 2003 to 2008. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and making comparisons where relevant.
The tabulation provides all the required information regarding the count of tourists and the aggregate of their expenditures from 2003 to 2008 in the UK. Units used for representing the number of visits and amount spent on visits are millions and pound billions respectively.
It clearly depicts that the visits kept gradually increasing till 2007, reaching the highest of 32.778 million by starting all the way from 24.715 million in 2003. So with the increase in visitors count, eventually the amounts spent as well increased year by year. Though the average spend per visit kept increasing for most of the consequent years, the average nights per visit kept decreasing after 2006 and recorded the lowest of 7.7 in two immediate years 2007 and 2008.
To our surprise, though the number of visitors and their stay duration decreased by 2008, still the expenditure and average spend per visit reached the highest values of 16,323 million and 511 respectively. Thus it is clear that tourists started spending more in the UK by 2008 but reduced their stay durations a bit.
