2017-2018 Yuma Winter Visitors Intercept Study

Yumans – Yuma residents – provide a consistent boost to local businesses and the overall economy. Though in the winter, when the population nearly doubles due to the influx of visitors seeking warmer weather – “snowbirds” – the economy experiences a great boost. The 2017-2018 Yuma Winter Visitor Study examines winter visitors and winter tourists and their impact on the local Yuma economy. This 2017-2018 Yuma Winter Visitor Study, done by the Arizona State University’s Center for Sustainable Tourism, dives deep into seasonal home and mobile home owners, as well as hotel and other lodging options.
