Title: Length and Rate of Individual Participation in Various Activities on Recreation Sites and Areas

Author: Tyre, Gary L.; James, George A.;

Date: 1971

Source: Res. Note SE-161. Asheville, NC: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southeastern Forest Experiment Station. 4 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: While statistically reliable methods exist for estimating recreation use on large areas, they often prove prohibitively expensive. Inexpensive alternatives involving the length and rate of individual participation in specific activites are presented, together with data and statistics on the recreational use of three large areas on the National Forests. This information can serve to improve objective use estimation on such areas and fill a void in the recreation planner's managerial knowledge.
