AHFME Symposium Abstract
Calculation of natural occupancy rates can assist market analysts in assessing the relationship between supply and demand in a market. In turn, this could help determine whether the market could absorb more supply in the short term and the long term. This paper outlines the procedure for estimating natural occupancy rates within the lodging industry.
