An investigation into the reliability of intended visitation behavior

John Loomis

Environmental & Resource Economics, 1993, vol. 3, issue 2, 183-191

Abstract: A test-retest analysis indicates reliability of responses regarding intention to visit, annual number of trips, and length of stay for three different lake levels. Comparison of actual length of stay and intended length of stay at the same lake level indicates validity of this type of intended visitation behavior. In addition, all three types of intended visitation behavior was statistically different across the three lake levels. Thus intended visitation behavior appears to be a viable approach to estimate changes in recreation use in response to changes in environmental quality for both economic efficiency and regional economic impact analysis.
