    Description

    The Lifestyle Zip Code Analyst was used as a secondary data source to compare selected lifestyle characteristics of the adult populations in 21 tourist and 45 non-tourist towns in the commonwealth of Massachusetts. Towns were rural in nature, with populations under 25,000. All tourist communities within the state were included in the survey. Non-tourist communities were randomly selected from towns with populations no less than 2,500 and no more than 25,000 in size. Adult participation rates were found to be higher for a number of leisure/culturally related activities in tourist communities. For other activities, little or no differences were found.
