Description: Social science research is often used by resource management agencies to "obtain a balanced view of the preferences and needs of individuals, communities, and special interest publics potentially affected by agency activities." This study explores the extent that those people who are born in New Hampshire (i.e., natives) are different from persons who moved to NH prior to 1970 (long time residents), during the 1970s and those who moved to the state during the 1980s and 1990s across twenty-one dependent variables of interest to outdoor recreation resource managers and planners. Five of the dependent variables were related to importance of and motivation for outdoor recreation, nine were related to participation in specific outdoor recreation activity packages, and seven measured attitudes towards specific outdoor recreation resource management programs and policies. This topic is investigated using survey data drawn from a random sample of persons licensed to drive in New Hampshire (n=928). This study concurrently considers the effect of the native/in-migrant cohort, and whether the residents currently live in a metro or non-metro county through the use of two-way analysis of variance including age of the respondent as a covariate. The results show that "natives" differ significantly from the in-migration cohorts across eight of the dependent variables. Residents of metro counties differed significantly from the residents on non-metro counties across seven of the variables. There were significant interactions between the native-cohort and metro/non-metro measure for four of the dependent variables. These results are interpreted within the context of both earlier/more recent research observations and outdoor recreation resource management.
