Abstract

The present study aims at taking an ecological approach to explain general and private types of accommodation organizations’ ecological movements in Turkey. Distribution Statistics for Certified Accommodation Facilities by Their Type issued by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey for the period between 1990 and 2015, was used as data source. General and private organization types were classified by using this data and previous studies in literature. In this study repeated measure ANOVA test is used in order to investigate the significant differences between general and private accommodation groups’ upward trends between years of 1990 – 2015. When the data is tested independently based on years it is found that there is significant difference only in the group of private organizations. There was an upward trend in all groups compared to the years whereas this difference was significant only in the group of private organizations. The results can aid organizations strategically implementing their business plans.
