    Description

    Following a brief historical overview of the social indicators movement, outdoor recreation measures which can be considered as social indicators are discussed. Such indicators are largely derived from social surveys. Illustrative data from 53 such surveys are presented. Despite the availability of such data, there have been few attempts to adapt them as established indicators in the outdoor recreation field. Reasons for not considering the data as indicators are suggested. Finally, a number of parameters which might be used as social indicators in outdoor recreation in the 1980's are outlined.
