About the Data

Airport passenger activity represents the sum of arrivals and departures in a given month. Data for each of the three airports is provided by airport authorities at Southwest Florida International Airport, Punta Gorda Airport, and Sarasota Bradenton International Airport. All data is updated on a monthly basis.

Data provided by each of the three local airport authorities were seasonally-adjusted by the Regional Economic Research Institute using the X13-ARIMA-SEATS seasonal adjustment program, software that is produced, distributed and maintained by the U.S. Census Bureau.
