Using the nationally representative survey, we examine tourism participation decision and tourism expenditure by Indian nationals. We use two-part (hurdle) model to allow characteristics to have differential effect on decision to undertake an overnight trip and amount of expenditure conditional on taking the trip. Our conditional expenditure model includes common trip related characteristics in addition to socio-demographic characteristics used in participation. We also use unconditional quantile regression to allow for heterogeneity of the impact across tourism expenditure.
