CHARACTERISTICS OF COMMERCIAL RESORTS AND RECREATIONAL TRAVEL PATTERNS IN SOUTHERN ONTARIO

THE STUDY OF TRAVEL PATTERNS AND USER CHARACTERISTICS AT COMMERCIAL RECREATION RESORTS AND PRIVATE COTTAGES WAS UNDERTAKEN TO EXAMINE PROCEDURES FOR PREDICTING RECREATIONAL TRAVEL BETWEEN PLACES OF ORIGIN AND DESTINATION AT COMMERCIAL AND PRIVATE VACATION AREAS IN SOUTHERN ONTARIO. IN SELECTED AREAS, RESORT OWNERS, RESORT GUESTS AND COTTAGE OWNERS WERE INTERVIEWED BY A FIELD TEAM USING QUESTIONNAIRE FORMS. THE INFORMATION OBTAINED WAS SUBJECTED TO ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING, AND STATISTICAL ANALYSIS WHICH INCLUDED PERCENTAGE FREQUENCY OF OCCURRENCE, FACTOR ANALYSIS, FACTOR SCORE ANALYSIS, AND MAPPING OF FACTOR SCORES. THE DATA VARIABLES OBTAINED FROM THE QUESTIONNAIRE WERE SUBJECTED TO CHI-SQUARED ANALYSIS, BUT CORRELATIONS IN THE VARIABLES WERE LESS SIGNIFICANT THAN HAD BEEN EXPECTED. A METHOD OF CLASSIFYING RESORTS WAS DEVISED WHICH SHOULD LEND ITSELF TO THE EXPLANATION OF TRAFFIC FLOW AND PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR AN ATTRACTION INDEX. /CGRA/
