This survey was conducted in 1978 to determine the nature of the national market that existed for campers and camping equipment. Four files contain data gathered from 2,013 respondents, measuring past, present, and projected habits and attitudes regarding family camping, vacation travel, leisure activities, and related equipment purchases. Part 1 contains information gathered in a female and a male face sheet survey, including such data as respondent's age, race, gender, region, state, county, number of subsamples, replications within a block, size of location (SMSA), metro code, serialization code, number of men (or women) in household, whom to interview, population weights, and household weights. In Parts 2-3, the variables are similar to those used in two previous studies, (NATIONAL CAMPING MARKET SURVEY, 1971 [ICPSR 7798] and NATIONAL CAMPING MARKET SURVEY, 1973 [ICPSR 7799]), e.g., use of seven specific types of camping equipment: tent, camping trailer, travel trailer, truck camper, pick-up cover, motor home, and converted van. Other similar data include type and date of outdoor recreation equipment purchases (e.g., boats and recreational land vehicles, as well as sporting, hunting, fishing, scuba, and aircraft equipment). This file also contains variables on willingness to attend camping shows, perceived cost involved in camping, and proposed camping fee structures for public lands. Part 4 contains background information about the respondents, e.g., region and state of residence, size of city, number, age, and gender of children, occupation of respondent, occupation of chief wage earner, and family income....
