This paper explains that, although the gathering, collating, reviewing and study of statistics, usually freely available from governmental agencies, are vital to any industry; Canada comes up woefully short of information applicable to the hospitality industry in comparison with the quality of the information available from United States agencies. The author points out that the information or data presented by the Canadian Tourism Commission, the Canadian Tourism Research Institute and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Division is highly suspect, is totally incomplete and generally pertains to tourism within Canada thus giving little recognition to international travel, tourism and hospitality industries. The paper demonstrates the use of U.S. government highway development information by the hospitality industry to expand hotels and other leisure attractions in Nashville and Memphis as an example of the use of statistics to create high-yield investments.

From the Paper:

"In the Knoxville area, Interstate 75 - a north to south major artery - and Interstate 40 - a coast to coast east to west artery - intersect are right now in the midst of a half-billion dollar downtown re-development program to enhance their economy. As with most cities of its size in the south and elsewhere, the downtown section was in fast rate of decline because of urban sprawl. By the use of strategic data from TDOT, the city fathers decided that they could bring the downtown area back to life and add tremendously to the tax-base by means of the re-development plan. It was found that travelers from east to west that normally drive through can be attracted to spend the night in the "new downtown," by redeveloping the waterfront and making it an attractive tourist destination. The anchor businesses, of course, are reasonably priced, yet luxurious hotel/motel type accommodations."
