11 n LTOUR it = α i + β 1 LGNP it + β 2 LEX it + β 3 LPR it + β 4 D91 t + u it n β 1, β 2 > 0 n β 3, β 4 < 0

12 n Where the subindex i is for countries, t is for time and L denotes natural logarithms (log). And: –L TOUR i t is the log of the number of nights spent in Spanish hotels by tourists from country i during year t. In per capita terms.

13
13 L GNP i t log of the Gross National Product (in PPP dollars) of country i during year t. Expressed in per capita terms. –L EX i t log of the number of pesetas per unit of currency of country i during year t. –L PR t log of the price index of tourist services in Spain divided by the CPI of each country. –D91 t dummy variable for the Gulf War that takes the value 1 in 1991 and 0 elsewhere. –u i t Random error term.
