dc.description.abstractThis research replicates studies conducted in 1996, 2001 and 2006 for the Colorado Department of Agriculture. In 1996, the Colorado Department of Agriculture and Ag Insights worked with Colorado State University's Human Dimensions in Natural Resources Unit to develop a survey of Colorado residents to determine the public's attitudes towards such issues as food prices, food safety, pesticide use, environmental practices, wildlife and agriculture, animal welfare, land use, population growth and agricultural land preservation, among others. Subsequent reports have then compared the attitudes of Coloradans towards the above-mentioned issues across the years of 1996, 2001 and 2006. The 2011 survey is intended to add another year of data and comparisons built on these same objectives, but it also seeks to explore some new issues, including: 1. Exploring the food shopping attitudes and behaviors of Coloradans, with a particular focus on where they shop for foods (including home production). This included questions on Colorado Proud and purchases of local foods. 2. Determining the trust that Coloradans have in different sources of information on food, agriculture, nutrition, and food safety. 3. Exploring the participation in agritourism by Coloradans, including the types of activities they participate in, and the frequency of their participation. Note that this report explores all of the above subjects for the entire survey sample. However, additional research and synthesis may also be conduct on differences in perceptions among Coloradans that may be based on geographic location, length of residence in-state, or other pertinent characteristics.
