STATISTICS One Cook Islander is employed for every five beds in the country's tourism industry - about the same ratio as 21 years ago. There were 563 residents employeed in hotels and motels, according to Statistics Cook Islands. However six times as many expatriate employees are employed, up from 15 in 1983 to 94 in 2004. Figures on resident and expatriate employee figures are only contained in the annual bulletin, with the next one not due until July 2006. Quarterly bulletins give slightly different figures - split between part and full-time workers. Latest available figures show just 513 full-time workers, with 140 part-time. This total - 653 - contrasts with a high of 685 workers in December 2004. Tourism has dropped dramatically since then.
