Abstract

Surveys of wilderness users in four selected wilderness areas and proposed wilderness areas in Utah indicated that expenditures by these visitors, while similar to other outdoor recreation participants, are not sufficiently large to significantly influence the local county economies. The application of input-output multipliers to these expenditures suggests that wilderness users contribute significantly less than 1% of total sales to most of these counties, and not more than 2.5% in any county studied.
