I recently found the following statistics on timeshare.

Total Impact

Combined direct, indirect, and fiscal impacts in 2005 by the U.S. timeshare industry contributed an estimated $92 billion to the U.S. economy in 2005. This included $62 billion in consumer and business spending; 565,300 full- and part-time jobs; over $21 billion in salaries, wages, and related income; and approximately $8.5 billion in tax revenue.

U.S. Timeshare Vacationers' Characteristics

There are over 1,600 timeshare resorts in the U.S., attracting over 4.1 million households to timeshare ownership.

Number of timeshare trips: 5.7 million

Number of people per party: 3.8

Number of nights in resort area: 8.1

Estimated total spending: $10 billion

U.S. Timeshare Vacationers' Characteristics

Of the $10 billion spent by timeshare vacationers, well over 90% occurred outside of the resort among local area businesses. Visitor spending during timeshare vacations supported approximately 99,700 jobs and $3.0 billion in salaries, wages, and related income at businesses in resort destinations, such as restaurants, retail outlets, and visitor

These statistics are from 2005, I am looking for more recent numbers. Does anyone know where I may be able to find such information?

Any members selling Timeshare now? If so with what kind of results?

Thank you for your interest.
