  • Abstract

    This survey was conducted in 1978 to determine the type of national market for campers and camping equipment. Approximately 60 questions were asked of the respondents which analyzed past, present and future camping activities and preferences, equipment, attitudes, other leisure activities and background information. There are four files of data, each with 2,013 records: file one contains the first 80 columns of data per respondent; file two contains the second 80 columns of data; file three contains the next 80 columns and file four contains the last 80 columns.
