Outdoor recreation activities- Demand

General description:

The local recreation demand was mapped using the location of beneficiaries of recreational opportunities as an indicator, including both residents and tourists. Thus, we quantified the local recreation demand based on the number of residents and tourists, using national census data and occupancy rates of tourist accommodation establishments at the municipality level. The following explanations are partly cited from Schirpke et al. (2017)1 .

Input Data

  • National Census data
  • Occupancy rates of tourist accommodation

Calculation processes:

(1) Calculate permanent resident equivalent

Tourism occupancy rates were converted into a 'permanent resident equivalent' by dividing the number of nights by 365 and added to the number of residents, representing the number of people that might daily benefit from recreational opportunities.

(2) Disaggregate data to municipality level

Next, the density per municipality is calculated and the demand rescaled from 0 (low) to 100 (high) to compare it with recreation supply and flow.
