Experimental statistics use new data sources and methods to advance in the modernisation of statistics. In this context, the use of Big-Data as a data source should allow us to make progress in statistics that lighten the burden of survey responses. In addition, we will be able to explore emerging phenomena and obtain new data that are of interest to people and institutions that use official statistics.
Visualization of hotel prices
This graph is a heat map representing the distribution of hotel establishments (hotels and guesthouses) in the Basque Country and their prices, as well as their trends. The data used were obtained online through web-scraping techniques. They were subsequently merged with the Eustat Survey on Tourist Establishments. The prices by category, the spatial autocorrelation of the hotel prices and the pricing trends were studied.
