EVIDENCE ON THE ACCURACY OF EXPENDITURES REPORTED IN RECREATIONAL SURVEYS

This article discusses the results of four experiments to test the accuracy of recreational expenditures reported in survey relative to expenditures reported in dairies. We found few situations in which the reported expenditures in the surveys and diaries differ significantly. In general, we conclude that individuals are able to accurately report recreational expenditures in ex post mail surveys. Given the wide usage of survey expenditure data by economists, we find this results encouraging.
