Survey “Personal and Professional Trips of Latvian Residents”

During the emergency situation the Central Statistical Bureau (further in the text – CSB) continues to survey population about trips because the information acquired is significant at national level for the analysis of tourism sector, especially, during the Covid-19 pandemic when trips abroad are replaced by trips around Latvia and we are encouraged to go outdoors, visit walking routes and other objects.

If you have received CSB letter, your address was selected with random sampling method. The survey covers all persons aged 15 and over actually living in the household.

You will be asked about leisure and business trips – destination, duration, aim, transport used, types of accommodation and their reservation, as well as expenditures.

Please participate in the survey also in case you have not made any trips.

The survey is carried out in all European Union member countries, therefore impact of Covid-19 to travel habits of population will be comparable among the Baltic and other countries.

In line with the laws and regulations of the European Union and the Republic of Latvia, the CSB has the right to collect and process personal data and is obliged to ensure the protection and confidentiality of the data you provide. The data obtained will be published only in aggregated form for analysis of economic and social phenomena and processes.
