Description

This National Indicator estimates the proportion of adults making one or more visits to the outdoors per week.

From 2013 the percentage of adults making one or more visits to the outdoors per week is based on analysis of the Scottish Household Survey (SHS). The SHS is a continuous survey based on a sample of the general population in private residences in Scotland. One random adult in each surveyed household is also asked a series of questions. For the visits to the outdoors question, the adult is asked to describe how often they visit the outdoors from a range of possible categories. Those categories which were once a week or more often are grouped together to produce a single figure for each year. The full list of categories includes: Every day, Several times a week, Once a week, Several times a month, Once a month, Less often, Not at all, Don’t know.

The SHS annual reports can be found here .

For 2006 to 2012 the percentage of adults making one or more visits to the outdoors per week is based on analysis of the Scottish Recreation Survey (ScRS) which was carried out for the last time in 2012. Further details of the survey are available in its annual reports.

Accuracy and Reliability

Although the SHS sample is chosen at random, the people who take part in the survey will not necessarily be a representative cross-section of the population. Like all sample surveys the results of the SHS are estimates of the corresponding figures for the whole population and these results might vary from the true values in the population due to incomplete coverage, as some populations such as hospitals and prisons are excluded from the sampling frame, natural variability in the sample and potential sources of bias such as non-response (although comparisons with other sources suggest that the effects of this bias are non-significant). Further information on the accuracy of SHS data are available through our Methodology and Fieldwork Outcomes report and in summary form in the Annual Report .

Prior to 2013 the source of this data was the Scottish Recreation Survey (ScRS). The wording and response options were the same in both surveys, making the results broadly comparable. In 2012, which was the last year that the ScRS was run, figures were provided from both surveys, which returned the same result.

Relevance

Outdoor recreation is beneficial for health and well-being. It also provides opportunities for people to come into contact with, and increase their understanding of, the natural environment. Although outdoor recreation has multiple motivations, this indicator provides a useful measure of the numbers of people who gain benefit and enjoyment from nature and biodiversity and improve their understanding of the importance and functioning of the natural environment.

Timeliness and Punctuality

The data are published in the Scottish Household Survey Annual Report, which is published annually in August.
