Abstract: For most recreation demand data sets, different individuals visit different subsets of the available sites. Interior solutions (i.e, individuals who visit all recreational sites) are not the norm. Boundary solutions (i.e., individuals who do not participate, or who visit some, but not all, of the sites) predominate. We critique eight demand models in terms of their ability to accommodate boundary solutions. Three models are recommended for consideration when there are multiple sites and the data set includes a significant number of boundary solutions: a repeated nested-logit model, a multinomial share model, and a Kuhn-Tucker model.
