1 North American data in this table are different from and should
not be compared with the border-crossing data in
table 7. See also
box 1 on page 4.
2 U.S.-Canada and U.S.-Mexico overnight travel data presented in this table are from the U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, Office of Tourism Industries. They reflect overall totals for inbound and outbound overnight travel with Canada and Mexico. Table 5 in this report also presents overall totals, but with mode of transportation details. Data for table 5 are from Canadian and Mexican government agencies. These agencies make adjustments and revisions to their data at the modal level. Because of this, the overall overnight travel totals in table 5 will differ from those in this table. Throughout this report, U.S. Department of Commerce data are used for overall overnight travel totals, while Canadian and Mexican sources are used for mode of transportation and trip purpose analysis.
3 The aggregate figures for overseas trips differ from the sum of trips to or from individual regions because a single outbound trip by a U.S. resident is counted once as an "overseas" trip but could be attributed to multiple regions.
4 Oceania includes Australia and New Zealand.
