Dear Atty. Jennifer A. Olba,

The data requested will be used for our undergraduate thesis in Computer Science at Negros Oriental State University which is focused on Data Mining and Data Analytics. With that said, our study would be to analyze the choices of tourists (domestic and foreign) in the places that they would visit. I also requested for other datasets such as the number of businesses per region and the nature of the business (entertainment, employment, etc.) to determine the reason behind the tourists' decision-making. Ultimately, the study aims to determine the factors behind tourist visits.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

John Ronald
