National Survey on Recreation and the Environment

Snapshot : The National Kids Survey (NKS), a companion survey to the National Survey of Recreation and the Environment (NSRE), focuses on youth 6 to 19 years old. The NKS fills a void in outdoor recreation research by identifying patterns in how America's youth spends its time outdoors and what outdoor activities it engages in. The partnerships behind this history of national surveys, and behind the two most recent surveys, have been highly effective and have provided timely information for guiding National and State policies and legislation.
