    Abstract

    An economic evaluation has been undertaken of the impact of warning information issued by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology about tropical cyclones on the revenues of operators of hotels, motels and other commercial tourist accommodation dwellings along the Queensland Coast. The impact was investigated using a combination of cross-sectional and time-series data for the period 1986-1996. Tropical cyclone warning information is found to have an effect on the revenues of commercial tourist accommodation operators. However, this effect is small when considered as a proportion of total revenues of commercial tourist accommodation operators.
