Travel remains the hardest-hit industry. Despite significant gains in domestic leisure travel, business travel and international inbound travel remain severely depressed, resulting in an uneven recovery across travel sectors, not to mention significant losses that remain within travel employment.

U.S. Travel's Answer Sheet is the industry's go-to resource for official data on travel spending, employment and economic impact. The data reflects recovery progress through 2021, with comparisons to 2019 and 2020, across all sectors – including total travel and breakdowns by international travel, business and leisure.
