This paper develops regional recreation supply and demand projections, by combining coefficients from the national 1989 RPA Assessment models with regional regressor values. Regional recreation opportunity estimates also are developed, based on regional travel behavior. Results show important regional variations in projections of recreation opportunities, trip supply, and trip demand.

Keywords: outdoor recreation, regional demand, regional supply, recreation projections, demand/supply comparisons, projection models, trends
