Abstract Politically, more focus has been given to the importance of nature areas for the Danish publics outdoor life in recent years – a focus culminating in the spring of 2015, when the Ministry of Environment published the first Danish national outdoor recreation policy (Miljøministeriet, 2015). In preparation of this policy, the national economic significance of outdoor recreation was called for. To meet this demand, the consumption related to the Danes’ outdoor recreation activities were estimated based on data collected through a questionnaire survey. Knowing this consumption allows for ’input-output’ analyses to calculate the proportion of Denmarks gross domestic product (GDP) that is attributable to the outdoor recreation activities of Danish households, and the related employment (Jacobsen et al., 2014).
