DescriptionData being collected by The National River Recreation Study (NRRS) (U.S. Forest Service, St. Paul) includes origin-destination information for recreational visits to a variety of rivers nationwide. Such data are being collected over several years during a time of rapidly changing energy costs, economic conditions and consumer attitudes. This presents an opportunity to explain trends in river recreation demand. Methods of site choice and site demand analysis may be useful for this purpose. Appropriate mathematical models are defined and explained. It is shown how these models can be used to explain demand and predict trends.
