This book fills an important gap in the fields of parks, recreation, tourism, and human dimensions of natural resources.

This book fills an important gap in the fields of parks, recreation, tourism, and human dimensions of natural resources. Until Vaske's new (2008) book, there were no good, comprehensive, step-by-step texts on how to design and administer surveys in parks, recreation, tourism, and human dimensions, and then how to analyze the data. In my opinion, there is not a better book out there on survey methodology and applied statistics using SPSS.

If you are doing human dimensions work, research or investigation in the natural resources, you need this book. It starts with the basics and works through complicated statistical analysis in a way that makes the concepts comprehensible for those with limited stats or research knowledge. Vaske wrote this book for those who are working in applied fields, and his use of empirical examples just makes sense. You won't be disappointed with this text. Thanks to Dr. Vaske for creating such a useful resource for the natural resources field.

A very good resource for survey research, especially in environmental research and locations. I had to get this for a class, but ended up buying it because I liked it so much. It discusses implementation of surveys and analysis of survey responses. I would definitely recommend it.

Excellent reference in doing statistical analysis using SPSS and survey data.

The book is just for class... but it took a MONTH to ship! if you need it for school make sure you order wayyyyy in advance!Survey Research and Analysis: Applications in Parks, Recreation and Human Dimensions

I was fortunate enough to take Jerry's class in survey research. We used this book as the main resource, and I continue to use it in my regular research. The book is extremely comprehensive, starting with basic statistics, going through survey design and implementation, continuing with commonly-used statistical tests, and finishing with more difficult statistical tests. The text is so broad, I find myself using it as one of my main references.

Each chapter includes a background on whichever topic is being covered along with a step-by-step example of how to achieve results using SPSS (if the topic calls for such explanation). The data used in the examples and explanation revolves around Parks and Recreation, but I found it quite simple to relate the examples to my own research in education.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a in-depth overview of a wide variety of topics used in parks/recreation and social science research.

Note: The course I took only covered the last half of the book. However, I have since used the material in the first half of the book to help me in my personal research. It was not covered in the class, so I the review here should not be taken as an endorsement of the book with the class, but for the book itself. It stands on its own very well.

This book fills an important gap in the fields of parks, recreation, tourism, and human dimensions of natural resources. Until Vaske's new (2008) book, there were no good, comprehensive, step-by-step texts on how to design and administer surveys in parks, recreation, tourism, and human dimensions, and then how to analyze the data. Vaske has done an excellent job, especially by demonstrating necessary approaches using graphics from software programs such as SPSS. This book is suitable for an advanced undergraduate class and graduate classes, as well as for academics and agency researchers wishing to design, administer, and analyse surveys and resulting data. Be aware, however, that the analysis approaches discussed largely involve descriptive and bivariate statistics (e.g., reliability, chi-square, t-test, anova, regression); not discussed are more advanced multivariate approaches such as factor analysis, cluster analysis, and structural equation modeling. These are left for another book and more advanced audiences. This book is over 600 pages, which makes the $60-70 price tag a great deal compared to other more generic (i.e., not specific to parks, recreation, tourism, human dimensions of natural resources) text books on survey research and statistics that are often well over $100!
As a social scientist and survey statistician, this book is consistently proving to be the book that I reach for first. Survey Research and Analysis answers my questions far more often than any of the 60 or so research methods and applied statistics books on my bookshelves. In my opinion, there is not a better book out there on survey methodology and applied statistics using SPSS. The book is directly applicable to a wide range of traditional social sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology), as well as more applied fields (e.g., human dimensions of natural resources, recreation, tourism). Numerous topics (e.g., developing and implementing surveys, selecting an appropriate statistic, running and interpreting analyses in SPSS) are covered in an easy to follow format. The mix of research methods and applied statistics makes this an excellent textbook for introductory undergraduate or graduate research methods and applied statistics courses. I highly recommend Survey Research and Analysis. I am looking forward to Dr. Vaske's next textbook that includes multivariate methods.
