The purpose of this research is to develop a systematic methodology for occupancy forecasting and to obtain the future occupancy trend for the Las Vegas hotel/motel industry; A systematic analytical model is developed for generic hotel/motel occupancy forecasting; The analytical model includes log-linear regression models and "other" extrapolation forecasting models for model parameter estimation and optimization; The model is applied to Las Vegas and the U.S. lodging occupancy data from 1973 through 1990 and is used to forecast Las Vegas and the U.S. room occupancies from 1991 through 1993.
