Similarities and Differences in the Outdoor Recreation Participation of Racial/Ethnic Groups: An Example from Illinois

Abstract

Much of the initial research on the outdoor recreation participation of racial/ethnic groups focused on between-group differences in percent participating in an activity. This tended to focus research, policy, and management on between-group differences at the expense of a more comprehensive look at the participation patterns of racial/ethnic groups. This paper suggests a more comprehensive approach that focuses on similarities as well as differences between groups along several dimensions of participation. It also looks at participation rates while taking into account age, residence, household income, gender, and household size.
