Abstract : A review of existing data collected throughout the Upper Mississippi River system showed that it could not be usefully incorporated into the comprehensive, system-wide data needed for the study on assessing the economic impacts of recreation on the Upper Mississippi River. Therefore, an independent survey effort was chosen. This report describes the study design, the sampling plan and a compilation of use and expenditure data and report overall study findings. Geographically, the study includes the commercially navigable portions of five rivers: the Mississippi (North of Cairo IL); the Illinois River, St. Croix River, Minnesota River and the Kaskaskia River. Also included are side channels, cloughs, and lakes associated with these rivers. In total, the study region is contained within the states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois and Missouri....Recreation, Mississippi River, Sampling.
