AERE Workshop on Recreation Demand Modeling

Quick Links

Course Materials

The topic of the workshop was issues associated with modeling the demand and valuation of recreational resources. Three themes that are associated with the current research on the economics of valuing outdoor recreational resources provided the basis for organizing a day and a half of sessions at the workshop. The first of these themes was in the modeling of the role of site attributes and determining the demand for recreational sites. Closely related to modeling is the issue, considered in the second session, of how to model the demands for recreational sites within a given region. The objective of the third session was to appraise our current understanding of the modeling of non-user values.
