Evaluation of Tourism Developing Level of Yangtze Delta Cities Basing on Analytic Hierarchy Process Analysis and Clustering Analysis
Abstract: Tourism data of 26 cities in the Yangtze River Delta of 2017 are summarized and counted. Method of Analytic Hierarchy Process is used to construct a three-level indicator system, including three secondary indicators such as scale of the tourism industry, number of tourists and tourism income and a number of three-level indicators. And then weight of each indicator is determined, the original data are standardized, and tourism development level score of each city is calculated. Finally, 26 cities are divided into 5 types by cluster analysis and characteristics of each type of cities are analyzed and evaluated.
