A baseline study was designed to identify essential sociological dimensions of participation in water-based activities. Objectives were: to identify social groups participating in water-based recreation, as well as the social and economic characteristics of user-nonuser populations, to identify variations among the social groups participating in specific water-based recreation activities, to determine how specific water-based recreation is complementary or divergent from involvement in other outdoor leisure pursuits, and to compare similarities and differences among water-based recreational users and nonusers in terms of involvement in general patterns of leisure behavior.
