Total tourist consumption is estimated at 2,4 billion NOK in Hedmark and 4,9 billion NOK in Oppland (2005). Total direct and indirect production impacts are estimated at 2,6 bill NOK in Hedmark and 5,4 bill NOK in Oppland. 5,4 % of total employment in Hedmark, and 10,4 % in Oppland, is directly or indirectly related to tourism. Tourists in second homes constitute nearly 50 % of total tourist accommodation figures, but only 20 % of the tourist consumption. There are 73 000 second homes in the two counties and plans for a 30-40 % increase. Development of second home areas gives rise to substantial regional and local profits and employment.
