Consideration Set In Tourist Destinations As A Fuzzy Set

Since the 20th century, tourism has turned into one of the economic activities of major growth in the  world. The tourist activity mobilises public and private funds, affecting the economic and social  conditions of the population, not only in the recipient countries but also in the issuers; and it can be a  fundamental tool to achieve a sustainable development as it is a generator of employment and of  currencies. This justifies the systematical pursuit of the tourist activity in a region or country.  The purpose of the present research is to develop a methodology to determine the fuzzy consideration set  of tourist destinations of university students, on the basis of the set of the places they know.
