ABSTRACT

The inequality and polarization phenomenon have emerged as a social issue to be solved. Recently some studies have analyzed the inequality and polarization phenomenon about leisure time and activities, but few have hitherto been introduced and applied to the tourism research. This study aims at examining the inequality and polarization phenomenon in domestic travel activities - the number of travels, total number of travel days, travel expenditures - using 2010 & 2011 Korea National Tourism Survey data(Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism). The inequality of domestic travel activities was analyzed by calculating the Gini coefficient and the polarization of domestic travel activities was analyzed by calculating the Wolfson index. The result of this study showed that there are significant inequality and polarization phenomenon in domestic travel activities. In addition to, domestic travel activities inequality and polarization phenomenon has been intensified and the polarization of income inequality has been getting more serious. Policy implications and limitations of the study were discussed at the end of study.
