Abstract. The current stage of economic development of the Russian Federation is characterized by the search for new prospects and unrealized potentials, with the help of which it is possible not only to solve economic problems, but also to overcome the social difficulties that have developed over the past decades. The tourist industry is just such a promising area for further development. Possessing a unique combination of social and economic characteristics, the tourism industry places high demands on the conditions for planning and implementing strategic projects. One of the directions to improve the efficiency of the implementation of projects in the tourism sphere is the assessment of the potential in this activity field. This will improve strategic planning and control over the implementation of new projects. Widely used in economic sociology multi-criteria assessment methods are suitable tools for successful and correct determining the potential of various types of tourism. However, in the process of implementing this method at the stage of determining the weight coefficients, there is a high probability of error. Setting an incorrect weighting coefficient will negatively affect the final efficiency and reliability of the constructed socio-economic model, which will lead to incorrect initial data for conducting strategic analysis of the industry. In this study, in order to eliminate this problem, it is proposed to conduct a preliminary analysis to determine the importance of one of the elements of the tourism sector, namely accommodation facilities. Using existing statistical data and applying the method of correlation dependence the authors determine the influence of accommodation facilities in the tourism industry, as well as determine the basic spread of the weight coefficient for its further use in multi-criteria assessment methods of evaluation of socio-economic processes. As a result, it will allow to avoid the indicated danger and increase the reliability of determining the tourist potential of a particular type of tourism or tourist territory.
Key words: tourist potential, accommodation facilities, hotels, motels, hostels, multi-criteria analysis, cluster analysis, correlation dependence, weight coefficient.
