Percentage of nights spent at tourist accommodation establishments in coastal areas by NUTS 2 level. A night spent (or overnight stay) is each night a guest / tourist (resident or non-resident) actually spends (sleeps or stays) in a tourist accommodation establishment or non-rented accommodation. Overnight stays are calculated by country of residence of the guest and by month. Normally the date of arrival is different from the date of departure but persons arriving after midnight and leaving on the same day are included in overnight stays. A person should not be registered in two or more accommodation establishments at the same time. Coastal areas are defined on the basis of the local administrative units or municipalities (LAU-2) and consist of those municipalities (or equivalent local administrative units) within a given country or NUTS 2 region that are bordering the sea or close to the sea: - If a municipality borders the sea, it is by default coastal; - If a municipality is not bordering the sea but has 50% of its surface within a distance of 10km from the sea, it is also considered coastal; All other municipalities are non-coastal.
