dc.description Data on single people from Poznan were taken from A.P. Lubowiecki-Vikuk’s doctoral dissertation, entitled “Determinants of recreational and tourism activity among single men and women from the Wielkopolska Province”, written under the supervision of Stefan S. Bosiacki (University School of Physical Education in Poznan). This work was supported by Jozef Pilsudski University of Physical Education in Warsaw and Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland (grant DS – 86; project leader Full Professor A.K. Gajewski), and Rector of Warsaw School of Economics funds.
dc.description.abstract Background: The analysis of socio-demographic factors that determine the duration of tourist trips among urban single people. Material/Methods: The research included 598 randomly selected single people from Warsaw and Poznan. The study was conducted using the survey method. The relation between trips for ≥ 10 days and the variables characterizing the demographic structure of the respondents were assessed using log-linear analysis. The significance of the impact of the factors examined in the analysis was determined by chi-squared test. Results: Single people from Poznan with secondary and higher education are, respectively, more than 4-fold and 7-fold likely to go on longer trips (≥ 10 days) than shorter ones (< 10 days). Highly educated single people from Warsaw (compared to those with secondary education) are 1.25 times more likely to travel for ≥ 10 days than for < 10 days. The likelihood for long trips also increases several times among people who have income > PLN 2,000 (3 times in Poznan, 7 times in Warsaw) and those declaring income < PLN 1,500 (1.6 times in Poznan, 1.5 times in Warsaw). In the case of respondents from Warsaw, being a man doubles the likelihood of traveling for ≥ 10 days. Conclusions: Participation of urban single people in long-term trips is a reflection of contemporary trends in the market of tourist services. However, it is necessary to conduct a comprehensive analysis of leisure time behavior of single people. It is crucial in the quest to satisfy the tourist desires of today's consumers of leisure services.
