This study is an update and expansion of an earlier study of active outdoor recreation produced in 2006 by the Outdoor Industry Association. The2006 study focused solely on human-powered activities. While this studyincludes the same human-powered activities as the earlier work, anadditional survey was conducted to gauge the economic contributions of motorized outdoor recreation. The survey of human-powered recreationwas sponsored by the Outdoor Industry Association. The survey of motorized outdoor recreation was jointly sponsored by the OutdooIndustry Association
, the Western Governors’ Association, the Motorcycle
Industry Council and the National Marine Manufacturers Association.To maintain consistency with the prior study, the data collection for thisstudy was again contracted to Harris Interactive, Inc.
