INTRODUCTION MODULE1

[Note: The following 2 paragraphs are introductory material about NSRE 2000 and are not part of the survey.]

BACKGROUND: NSRE 2000 will be the seventh in the Federal Government's on-going series of U.S. National Recreation Surveys. As we enter the 21st Century with its promise of dramatic social and economic change, it is ever more imperative that the evolution of outdoor recreation markets be closely monitored for sustained demand trends and emerging shifts that may signal needed adjustments in public land policies, entrepreneurial investments and collaborative management strategies. NSRE 2000 will provide in-depth, science-based coverage of the American public's demand for outdoor recreation and the social, economic and environmental factors driving demand shifts.

DESIGN: NSRE 2000 will be an in-the-home phone survey of 40,000 households across all ethnic groups throughout the United States. Modules of questions covering outdoor recreation participation, demographics, household structure, lifestyles, environmental attitudes, natural resource values (for example, concerning Wilderness), constraints to participation, participation styles, and attitudes toward management policies will be designed to examine how outdoor recreation and concerns for the environment play out in people's lives. The survey is scheduled to begin March 1, 1999, and run over the course of 12 months through February 2000. Analysis will proceed as data are being collected to produce periodic reports on survey results that are of interest to participating organizations and the outdoor recreation and natural resources communities at large. In particular, NSRE 2000 will serve FS needs for Results Act Strategic Planning, forest plan revisions, constituency identification, monitoring, and science advancements.

INTERVIEWER READ:

The Human Dimensions Research Laboratory at the University of Tennessee is conducting a National Survey for agencies and organizations concerned about helping provide better opportunities for Americans' outdoor recreation. Your telephone number was randomly selected and we would like to interview a member of your household. So that our results will be representative, we need to interview the person 16 years or older in your household who most recently had a birthday.

11. Are you the person 16 years or older who most recently had a birthday?

1. Yes --> skip to Q14

2. No --> ask Q12

12. May I speak with that person?

1. Yes

HELLO MY NAME IS [name]. I'm calling from the HUMAN DIMENSIONS RESEARCH LABORATORY CENTER at the UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE.

Q14 ON BEHALF OF THE HUMAN DIMENSIONS LABORATORY, I WOULD LIKE TO ASK IF YOU WOULD BE WILLING TO PARTICIPATE IN A NATIONWIDE SURVEY ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT AND ABOUT OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES YOU DO AROUND THE HOME, IN YOUR COMMUNITY, OR ON VACATIONS AND TRIPS.

1. YES

2. NO -->GO TO Q594

Thank you. I want to assure you that all the information you give me will be kept strictly confidential. This interview is strictly voluntary. If you don't want to answer any particular question, just tell me. Also my supervisor may listen to part of the interview to be sure that I'm not making any mistakes.

********INSERT PRIVACY ACT and PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT STATEMENT *************

[Laura Cahall sent me a copy of the revised "Burden Statement" required under the Paperwork Reduction Act on 2/17/99, but I'm not sure it is what Ken was referring to about a "privacy statement". Also, it does not seem appropriate for a telephone interview. I'll check into it. (d:\nsre\omb\burden.wpd) CJB]

  • R

DETAILS CONCERNING SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES OF INTEREST MODULE

Examples of the types of questions would be:

  • Specialized equipment purchased and used
  • Places where activity occurred
  • Type of group activity done with
  • Transportation or other facilitative services used
  • Training or skills development courses, etc.
  • Years having participated in the activity

NOTE: THIS SECTION IS NOT YET DEVELOPED. Two things, we need to identify which activities we need this detail on and second, we need to narrow down what needs to be asked.

LAST TRIP PROFILE MODULE

(NOTE: A decision protocol will be needed to guide selection of only one activity for a respondent who took primary purpose trips for more than one activity during the past year. An individual who took primary purpose trips for a single activity only will automatically be asked Last Trip questions about that activity. The Last Trip Profile Module is asked for one activity only. If the respondent answered the trips questions for more than one activity, some sort of allocation of the sample will be needed to assure a good distribution of trip samples across the various activities. Depending on performance during piloting, the preferred strategy, in lieu of allocating sample proportions among activities, would be to have the CATI program list all activities for which the respondent took a trip and randomly draw just one of the listed activities. Then, we would ask only about the most recent trip for the randomly selected activity, or about the only trip in the case where the respondent took just one trip for that activity during the year. This strategy would ultimately load samples of last trips onto the more popular activities. To better distribute the sampling somewhat, we could set an upper limit of samples for any given activity, which once reached, would trigger elimination of that activity from individual activity listings, unless the "filled" activity was the reason for the only trip a person had taken in the previous 12 months.

Becky, program the CATI system to track those persons indicating they took only one trip for the randomly selected activity, as well as those who took only one trip across all activities. For these respondents only, ask Qs 417 and 420.)

DISABILITIES MODULE

(NOTE: Except for the profiling questions shown below, all the rest of the accessibility questions included in NSRE 1995 have been deleted. Respondents receive this module only if they answer 'yes' to Q345, which asks: During anytime in your life have you been diagnosed with a particular disability, impairment, or disabling illness?)

** Q350 to Q355 from the 1995 NSRE should be included for this section to flow and to keep Q601, which sets up a later interview with the disabled household member.

Q499 Earlier you indicated that you are disabled or that you

require assistance from others, adaptive equipment, or

special facilities in order to participate in outdoor

recreation. Please tell me what type of special

services you require.

1) Guide dog

2) Someone to push wheelchair

3) Companion/support person

4) Verbal Instructions

5) Interpretation of written material

6) Wheelchair access

7) Cane, walker or wheelchair

8) Communication system

9) Other (please specify)

A) R,DK,NA

B) EXIT

Q510 What type of transportation do you most frequently use?

2) Someone else in household drives me to my destination

3) A friend drives me to my destination

4) I use public transportation

5) R, DK, NA

Q523 Are there any barriers that may limit or prevent your

participation in outdoor recreation?

1. Yes 3. R

2. No 4. DK, NA

Following is a list of statements. For each one, please tell me

whether you strongly agree (SA), agree (A), disagree (D), or

strongly disagree (SD)

Q525 It is important to me to have the opportunity to participate

in outdoor recreation.

1. Strongly Agree 5. R

2. Agree 6. DK, NA

3. Disagree

4. Strongly Disagree

Q526 When I encounter barriers when participating in outdoor

recreation, I always notify the appropriate parties and

express my concerns.

1. Strongly Agree 5. R

2. Agree 6. DK, NA

3. Disagree

4. Strongly Disagree

Q527 I limit my recreation experiences based on other people's

expectations of me.

1. Strongly Agree 5. R

2. Agree 6. DK, NA

3. Disagree

4. Strongly Disagree

People choose recreation areas in order to achieve specific experiences. For

example, a person may choose a city park to play softball, but an undeveloped

site in a forest for camping. To make a variety of outdoor experiences

possible, a variety of outdoor areas must be available. Some outdoor settings

would need many facilities, be easy to get to, attract large numbers of people,

and generally be very convenient. To provide different type of recreation

experiences, more primitive outdoor settings would require few or no

facilities, be more difficult to get to, have few people, and offer very few,

if any, conveniences.

With this in mind, for each statement that I read, please tell

me whether you strongly agree (SA), agree (A), disagree (D),

or strongly disagree (SD)

Q533 Recognizing that individuals seek specific experiences

through recreation settings that range from urban to

primitive, levels of accessibility should be established

to fit in with the setting (e.g. concrete sidewalks in

urban settings and rough, dirt paths in primitive

settings). Do you...

in National Wilderness Preservation System areas should ALWAYS

be made accessible to people with disabilities. Do you...

1. Strongly Agree 5. R

2. Agree 6. DK, NA

3. Disagree

4. Strongly Disagree

Q345 During anytime in your life have you been diagnosed with a particular disability, impairment, or disabling illness?

WILDERNESS MODULE

Interviewer Read--The Wilderness Act of 1964 allows Congress to set aside certain undeveloped federal lands for preservation in their natural, wilderness condition. Once set aside under the Wilderness Act, these lands cannot be used for some purposes, such as timber harvesting, developed ski resorts, or highways, because these uses would alter the natural conditions being protected. Together, the areas across the country that Congress has designated as Wilderness make up the National Wilderness Preservation System. These protected natural areas provide benefits such as wildlife habitat, natural scenery, scientific research, watershed protection and opportunities to experience nature by hiking the trails and seeing wildlife. To date, the Congress has added 625 wilderness areas to this country's National Wilderness Preservation System.

1. Question numbers in italics have been added for NSRE 2000. These were not included in NSRE 1995. Question numbers underlined have been modified in wording for NSRE 2000 and differ from the question used in NSRE 1995. Question numbers in bold are under consideration for deletion from NSRE 2000. Throughout, whether questions are deleted or whether other changes have been instituted, the question numbers will remain AS THEY WERE in NSRE 1995. The only exception will be for questions added in NSRE 2000 that were not in the preceding survey. All these are shown italicized. Contingency questions are indented in this instrument to indicate that they are a conditional follow-up to a previous question. Outdoor recreation activities are in bold so that they will stand out.

2. To reduce clutter in the following questions, both of these situations are indicated by "<randomly selected activity>".
