Stats SA said that income from accommodation only increased by 19% y/y in April‚ the result of a 9.8% increase in the number of stay unit nights sold and a 8.4% increase in the average income per stay unit night sold.

Stats SA describes a stay unit as a unit of accommodation available to be charged out to guests. Examples include a powered site in a caravan park or a hotel room.
