Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
Domestic tourism is one of the factors influencing the socio-economic development of the region. It is able to have a multiplier effect on the economy, contributing to the flow of funds to the regional budget, increasing employment, and expanding production of goods and services of local producers. In Russia, in contrast to countries such as the US, China, and Japan, domestic tourism is underdeveloped and does not make a significant contribution to the economy despite its high resource potential. One of significant reasons for such a situation is lack of information in this sphere, which affects the quality of management by regional authorities. The purpose for the research is to improve the information support of domestic tourism which is considered as an internal factor in the region’s socio-economic development. The research is based on general scientific methods of comparison, generalization, analysis, and synthesis. The informational framework includes works by domestic and foreign economists in methodological and practical management of domestic tourism development, as well as statistical data of state statistics services, the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), UNESCO. The article analyzes the state of domestic tourism in Russia, as well as in the Northwestern Federal District. It is revealed that the demand for domestic destinations among Russians is growing only amid restrictions of travel to popular foreign resorts. The study suggests monitoring domestic tourism, linking it with the region’s socio-economic development. The proposed domestic tourism monitoring system will improve the system of information support of this sphere, timely adjust the regional policy in socio-economic development and develop the necessary regulatory measures
