The purpose of this 1976 telephone survey was to provide Indiana's planners, legislators, and decision-makers with information on Indiana residents' outdoor recreation preferences. The resulting data collection contains information for 5,888 respondents representing 25 state regions and the state as a whole. Variables measure general satisfaction with Indiana's outdoor recreational facilities, outdoor recreational activities engaged in (including with whom, how often, and most popular activity), where activities took place (both in state and out of state), and the importance of 24 factors influencing the decision to select those activities (e.g., time availability, physical exercise, relaxation, and cost). In addition, the data provide socioeconomic and background information on the respondents, e.g., location, years of Indiana residence, community size, sex, age, marital status, race, household size, occupation, occupation prestige score, vacation days, family income, and spouse's age, education, and occupation.
