Decision makers seek to account for the socioeconomic values of environmental assets. However, understanding the available frameworks and data can be a barrier. We address this here by summarizing the data used across four case studies (3 geographic regions and 3 socio-economic value frameworks) to demonstrate what data are available and how they are applied to support decisions in varied contexts.
This record relates to outputs from a series of socio-economic surveys conducted nationally to benchmark awareness and perceptions towards the Australian Marine Parks. This includes a general public survey, a boat ramp survey (focussed on boat-based recreational users), a targeted survey (focussed on members of fishing, boating and yacht clubs) and a charter operator survey (focussed on fishing and eco-charter operators). All surveys were conducted across 2019-2020. Raw data could not be made available. Aggregated survey data is supplied as summary plots in the final report: https://www.nespmarine.edu.au/document/social-and-economic-benchmarks-australian-marine-parks
