Abstract: This survey was conducted by the Department of the Interior in the summer of 1977, when visitors to 153 Federal land management areas were interviewed, and in the following fall and winter when other individuals were queried at 35 additional areas. The purposes of the study were 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 dataset contains 6 decks of data for each of the 11,549 persons interviewed, for a total of 69,294 records. There are approximately 400 variables recording respondents' feelings about the specific Federal recreation area in which they were interviewed, as well as background information about each of the respondents. The data are available in card-image format.
