The laboratory consists of two modules. The first introduces the students to the main statistical methods for the market sample surveys addressed to the tourism sector. The second involves the participation of students in "field" workshops to acquire practical and operational skills in tourism planning. A wide use of Microsoft Excel software for data analysis is planned.
The activity aims to provide the practical technical skills (including statistical skills) needed to conduct preliminary surveys, analyse data and use them in designing tourism initiatives.
At the end of the teaching, students will be able to approach a market research problem in the tourism field, to analyze data collected in Excel and to set up a shared planning in the tourism field. Students will be able to find official data directly in the portals of the producing statistical agencies and to evaluate the quality of statistical data available on the web.
Face-to-face lectures. In case it would be impossible, for health reasons, to carry out the lessons in presence, they will be delivered remotely in streaming mode.

Written test using 5 cross quizzes, two open-ended questions on laboratory topics and a short exercise to be carried out on Excel.
The written test will evaluate the students' knowledge of statistical methods for market analysis. In addition to the correctness of the answers given, the language properties and clarity of the answers given will also be evaluated. The Excel exercise aims to assess the students' ability to process data in spreadsheets. The students' ability to clearly summarize and communicate the results of the simple statistical analysis required will be evaluated.
