Tourism spending in the Deep South

February 17, 2014

A recent Natchez Democrat article entitled “State officials lobbying for more tourism funds,” by Lindsey Shelton, got my attention because a graphic at the beginning of the story listed tourism spending by several states. Wondering what the per capita spending might be for those states I took the numbers in the article and divided them by the 2010 population numbers. Here are the results:

Florida Population 18,801,310 Tourism Spending $65 million Tourism Spending per capita $3.48

Tennessee Population 6,346,105 Tourism Spending $29 million Tourism Spending per capita $4.57

Alabama Population 4,779,736 Tourism Spending $18 million Tourism Spending per capita $3.77

Mississippi Population 2,967,297 Tourism Spending $6 million Tourism Spending per capita $2.02
