National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Socioeconomic surveys of human use, knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions in South Florida from 2014-01-20 to 2014-07-03 (NCEI Accession 0161541)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The data in this file comes from a survey of adult residents in South Florida. The survey results were obtained from a random stratified sample of households in Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties in South Florida in the year 2014. These data were collected to record baseline human dimensions information and socioeconomic characteristics of South Florida’s coral reef adjacent populations such as human use patterns, management support/opposition, and knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of coral reefs/coral reef management. These baseline data are being used as a starting point for the National Coral Reef Monitoring Program’s socioeconomic monitoring of South Florida’s coral reefs. Data were collected via telephone using random digit dialing, and the total sample size for this survey was 1,210 with a response rate of 13.4%.

Supplemental Information
Data were collected via telephone using random digit dialing, and the total sample size for this survey was 1,210 with a response rate of 13.4%. For a complete description of the data collection method, see Gorstein et al. (2016). Resident surveys took place in South Florida in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, and Monroe counties in 2014. The potential respondent universe for this study was adults, eighteen years or older, who live in one of the five above counties for at least 3 months out of the year. Due to the importance of understanding all potential users of the coral reefs who may be affected by activities related to NOAA’s CRCP, the survey was not restricted to those who live directly on the coastline. Therefore, all adults in these counties were included in the potential respondent universe. Residents were surveyed via telephone from January – March 2014, and again from May – July 2014. Phone number lists were purchased for the five counties containing both landline and cell phone numbers. Each number from the list was called up to five times, at which point the number was dropped from the calling process if it had not yet been answered. Contracted surveyors used Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) software and offered the survey in two languages: English and Spanish. Data analysis included descriptive analyses (e.g., measures of central tendency, examination of distribution), as well as examinations of statistical relationships between variables (e.g., cross tabulations, correlation, regression analyses). As a result of the survey under-sampling some demographic groups in South Florida (most notably younger people and Hispanic people), post-stratification sampling weights were calculated to make the sample representative of South Florida’s population. These post-stratification sampling weights were designed to fix the skewness of responses toward older people and non-Hispanic people, and were employed in all statistical analyses.


Submission Package ID: NEH7H6
Purpose The National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP) details a long-term approach to provide an ecosystem perspective via monitoring climate, fish, benthic, and socioeconomic variables in a consistent and integrated manner. The NCRMP in intended to coordinate various Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) biological, physical, and human dimensions activities into a cohesive NOAA-wide effort. Through the implementation of the NCRMP, NOAA will be able to clearly and concisely communicate results of national-scale monitoring to national, state, and territorial policy makers, resource managers, and the public on a periodic basis.
