The UK Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) is a technique that seeks to calculate the value of tourism in a way that allows it to be compared with other economic activities, and with tourism elsewhere. The TSA is attempts to reconcile demand data from tourism surveys with information on the supply of goods and services generated by tourism related industries. It follows guidelines from the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
