The horrific tragedy of September 11, 2001 made a huge impact on the tourism industry for both international and domestic travel. My Knoema demonstrates the impact that 9/11 caused on the incoming tourist for international and domestic travel. It also demonstrates the decrease on tourism expenditure. This dashboard reveals the time-zone from 1999 to 2009 (10 years), and its decrease in travel from 2001 to 2003.
The two graphs on the left side represent the arrival of both outbound and inbound tourism. In the year 2001, caused by the impact of 9/11, a decline is revealed on the arrival of tourists. The arrival of non-resident tourists declines from 51 thousand to 41 thousand, and the inbound tourism has a decrease of 5,000 US$ million.
The graphs on the right side represent the total expenditure generated from tourism. Because of the impact of 9/11 on the tourism industry, a decline of 20,000 US$ million is revealed.
My dashboard portrays how the impact of 9/11 created a decline in tourism in the United States. Also, how a decline in the tourism industry can easily occur from a terrorist attack.
