  • Abstract

    The Nebraska Natural Resource Survey, 2012 data were collected to assess the role that trust plays in driving intention to cooperate with a natural resource management institution, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC). Data were collected from a random sample of Nebraska landowners with more than 20 acres of rural land, in which urban land was excluded by zip code. Survey questions included measures of the respondent's knowledge, experience, and perceptions of the NGPC's practices, policies, and goals. Respondents were also queried on any landowner programs they had participated in through the NGPC and their experiences and recommendations surrounding them. Respondents were asked to address environmental concern issues in the relational context of the NGPC. Finally respondents were asked to rate their own trustworthiness and how they felt about the Keystone XL Pipeline proposal. Demographic information within this collection includes age, sex, race/ethnicity, political affiliation, as well as where they fall on the political spectrum.

Sampled Universe
Rural landowners in Nebraska. Smallest Geographic Unit: county
Landowners with more than 20 acres of rural land were identified by Survey Sampling International, a global provider of sampling solutions for survey research. Two lists of landowners were produced within the targeted Nebraska counties; urban areas were excluded by zip code. The first was a list of residences limited to lots larger than 20 acres and the second was a list of farms that have obtained a loan from the United States government. Duplicate addresses were eliminated and the sample was selected randomly.
