Airbnb will share anonymous, aggregated data about the Airbnb Community in the Czech Republic on an annual basis with the CZSO.  With this partnership, Airbnb and the CZSO want to make sure that all interested parties have valid data at hand and do not have to rely on third-party data. The Czech Republic with the scope of data it provides, their comprehensiveness, as well as well-elaborated methodology belongs to the top in the domain of tourism statistics in Europe.

“We are well informed about capacities and numbers of guests of collective accommodation establishments but we lack more precise and detailed information about other types of accommodation. It is offered now mainly via sharing economy where we use various sources and estimates. We thus appreciate that Airbnb is the first online platform that cooperates with us to make our data more precise,” Jaroslav Sixta, Vice President of the CZSO, says.

“We want to be a good partner to everyone in the Czech Republic and help everyone understand the benefits of home sharing. We are proud to be the first partner of this kind to the Czech Statistical Office and look forward to this innovative partnership supporting evidence-based conversations with partners and policymakers across the country,” Vladimír Beroun, Public Policy Manager for CEE at Airbnb said.
