Roy Morgan’s State of the Nation – Tourism presentation shows that 25.2% of Australia’s 10.9 million paid workers have four or more weeks’ worth of annual leave accrued, with 13.2% having more than five weeks. In total, Australian workers have accrued 140 million days’ worth of annual leave. This data is based on in-depth interviews conducted face-to-face with over 50,000 consumers per annum in their homes. Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine says that with the Australian economy showing signs of slowing, the potential boost that would come from people taking their accrued leave would be considerable. This would particularly be the case if Australians were encouraged to holiday in Australia.
