Description

The tabular dataset is a product of household survey conducted in 2018. The sampling geography was a predefined coastal region of North and South Carolina adjacent to offshore wind development areas. The subject of the data collection was resident perceptions of local offshore wind energy development. Variables relate to place attachment, recreational activities, social value of favorite places, awareness, perceived impact to important quality of life items, support level, past and future action, and demographic and household characteristics. There are two formats of the tabular dataset provided: csv and STATA. (2019-07-19).

The spatial/GIS dataset is a product of household survey conducted in 2018. The sampling geography was a predefined coastal region of North and South Carolina adjacent to offshore wind development areas. The subject of the data collection was resident perceptions of local offshore wind energy development. The spatial/GIS dataset is associated with a mapping question, Question 6 of the survey instrument. Question 6 asked respondents to identify three Favorite Places on a map of the study region, as well as to identify associated social values for each location. Locations identified were assigned to 10 square km cells during the survey coding process for spatial analysis and to visualize the spatial distribution of Favorite Places. Shapefiles are provided in the dataset. (OMB CONTROL NUMBER: 0648-0744) (2019-07-19).
