DescriptionStatistical models were devised for estimating both daily and seasonal attendance (and corresponding precision of estimates) through correlation-regression and ratio analyses. Total daily attendance for a test set of 23 campgrounds could be estimated from attendance measured in only one of them. The chances were that estimates would be within 10 percent of true attendance, 2 out of 3 times. Specific procedures for field use will rest on each user's requirements for precision and cost.
