The demand and utilization of recreational facilities. A probability model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

While it is evident that there is a need to provide greater quantity, quality and diversity in recreational facilities, it is difficult to estimate a potential population demand and utilization for such facilities. This paper provides a probability model for estimating the probability distributions of both these demands and utilizations and draws implications for public decision making concerning the location of such facilities. Because of the numerical difficulties inherent in computing these probability distributions, process simulation is suggested as an efficient mechanism testing alternative locational decisions.
