Calculating Average Daily Census

One of the measurements that destinations often use to assess their success in attracting and retaining visitors is Average Daily Census. Average Daily Census measures the average number of visitors at the destination on any given day during the period in question. Even though it sounds a bit complicated, the calculation is actually pretty easy. Let's say that Hawaii had 8,028,743 visitors in 2012 who stayed an average of 9.28 days. How many visitors days is that? Divide that by the period in question (i.e., how many days were there in 2012?). So how many visitors were there in Hawaii on an average day in 2012? Right. 203,570. Not the number you got? Check your work (and don't forget the year is 2012).

Order taking goes Digital at MSP


Concourse G at Minneapolis St. Paul airport (MSP) has one of the largest deployments of free public use iPads outside of the Apple stores. Every seat in the waiting area has an iPad. Every table in the food area has an iPad.

Every seat in the bar also has an iPad. As with most Delta flights, the system is 100% cashless, and requires a credit card.
There were some interesting sandwich choices, including the Swedish inspired "Sven and Ole," the Korean inspired "Sloppy Ko,"and the Japanese "Katsu Sub."





I ordered the "Sven & Ole" which was quite tatsy!
