Abstract: This telephone survey was conducted by the Department of the Interior in June 1977, when a representative national sample of 4,079 persons was selected and interviewed. The purpose of the study was to determine the importance of outdoor recreation to the American people, patterns of recreational land use, trends in recreation, the users of Federal land, and the deterrents, satisfactions, and preferences for outdoor recreation. This data file, which includes nine decks of data for each of the 4,029 respondents, has 36,261 records. There are approximately 450 variables which record the recreational preferences, opinions on facilities, and personal characteristics of each respondent. The data are available in card-image format.
