DescriptionOne of the arguments against higher fees at publicly-provided recreational facilities is that higher fees may force low-income users to reduce their use of facilities more than high-income users, or force them to stop using the facilities altogether if they cannot afford the higher fee. Measuring the impact of higher fees on current users with different income levels is an important factor to consider when contemplating fee increases. In this paper we develop a conceptual framework that can be used to determine whether higher fees have a differential impact on current users with different income levels.
