Outdoor Recreation and Tourism in Kansas; A Survey of Participation and Demand.
Smythe, Patrick E.
The purpose of the survey reported in this document was to gather information on participation and demand for outdoor recreation and tourism in Kansas to serve as a guide for public or private groups and persons interested in providing outdoor recreation and tourist facilities and services. Nonresident travelers in the western half of Kansas were interviewed from August to October, 1966, by highway patrolmen, other state personnel, members of local chambers of commerce and women's clubs, and others. State residents from Norton, Phillips, Smith, Graham, Rooks, Osborne, Gove, Trego, Ellis, and Russell counties were surveyed during the fall of 1966 by randomly selecting Kansas communities, stratifying those selected, and randomly sampling each stratum. Findings are presented, for in-state and nonresident users separately, on past activities over a 12-month period and anticipated activities over the next 12 months. Related documents are RC 005 732 and RC 005 734. (BO)
