National Coral Reef Monitoring Program: Socioeconomic surveys of human use, knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions in USVI

browse graphicPreview graphic
The socioeconomic survey data in this collection come from surveys of adult residents in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) conducted as part of NOAA's ongoing National Coral Reef Monitoring Program (NCRMP). Surveys are conducted for a random stratified sample of households on a recurring basis every 5-7 years. These data are collected to record human dimensions information and socioeconomic characteristics of the USVI's coral reef adjacent populations such as human use patterns, management support/opposition, and knowledge, attitudes, and perceptions of coral reefs/coral reef management. Because these surveys are conducted on a recurring basis with the same methods it is possible to use these data to identify changes over time. This dataset contains primary data from all socioeconomic monitoring cycles in USVI.

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.
