The Use of Importance-Performance Analysis to Identify Determinant Short Break Destination Attributes in New Zealand
Pike, Steven D. (2002) The Use of Importance-Performance Analysis to Identify Determinant Short Break Destination Attributes in New Zealand. Pacific Tourism Review, 6(1), pp. 23-33.
The paper presents results from the first formal investigation of domestic short break holidays in New Zealand. Importance-performance analysis (IPA) was used to identify the perceived strengths and weaknesses of five leading destinations. The results identified eleven attributes deemed determinant in the travel context. The graphical nature of the IPA also proved readily communicable to regional tourism organisations. However, while the technique proved useful at an individual destination analysis level, IPA proved cumbersome as a competitive positioning analysis tool.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
