restricted access Appendix G: Tourism Statistics (Lodgers' Tax Reports)
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Appendix G TOURISM STATISTICS (LODGERS’ TAX REPORTS) Vertical bars reflect data for 1999 (white), 2000 (gray), and 2001 (dark gray). Years are not significantly different (df = 2. MS = 1.1*1010 , F = 2.66, P > 0.14) When the cities are compared across seasons, however, it is clear that Santa Fe has higher revenues than Albuquerque in summer (tourist season ), but lower in all other seasons. This is borne out in a statistically significant interaction between season and city (df = 3, MS = 7.6*1011 , F = 184, P < 0.0001). Seasons differ from each other significant. (df = 3, MS = 5.4*1011 , F = 129.89, P < 0.0001) Using a Scheffe a posteriori test, autumn fees are 125 significantly higher than summer and spring (corresponding with the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta), which in turn are significantly higher than winter. Cities differ from each other (df = 1, MS = 1.5*1012 , F = 357.40, P < 0.0001), with Albuquerque raising more lodgers’ fees than Santa Fe. Analysis: three-way analysis of variance with fixed effects, analyzing the influence of year, season, and city (plus all two-way interactions) on lodgers’ taxes. I 126 APPENDIX G ...
