Nwaubani, J. C./ Kapoulas, N./ Georgia, L./ Καπουλάς, Νίκος/ Γεωργία, Λ.

In this study, we consider and estimate the most accurate association model of the Categorical Data Analysis (CDAS) for tourism: the total number of trips (absolute value/unit) by main mode of transport used in 13 EU countries. The data used in this study were obtained from the Eurostat and were estimated on actual base year from 2000 - 2008. Since the main focus is to have a better understanding of tourism - holidays in 13 EU countries, the analysis of association (ANOAS) table is given in order to ascertain the percentage of the data which is covered by each model. We find and estimate the association model with the best fit and in conclusion we find out that the row-column effect model RC (M = 8) has the best fit among all.
