More than 5 million tourists come to Tenerife every year, explaining why the Hotel and Services sectors account for more than 60% of the GDP. The currency is the euro. The average salary on the island is 900€ for women and 1,200 € for men. Unemployment is at 12% of the active population, of which 45% are students.
