An fsQCA modelling approach technique was employed in order to measure, estimate and confirm the different casual paths constructs, as well as to test the significance of the paths between different segments. Results indicate positive impacts have a significant and important relationship with tourism perceptions. On the contrary, negative impacts do not have a significant impact on tourism perceptions.
