In 2018 the Iowa OHV Association put a request in our grant to include funds to have our economic impact study updated. The previous info was almost ten years old and was not up to date with the times. This had not included info on SxS use as they were not as popular then, was based of the spending at the time, and just all around dated.
We were awarded those funds and worked with Mark Imerman from Regional Strategic to perform conduct this study. With the help from the Iowa DNR OHV program, we supplied information to Mark on total number of titled machines as well as total number of registered machines. Then the survey questions were discussed, reviewed, and distributed to 1500 random machine owners to gather info. This was broken out by machine type (ORM, ATV, and SxS) to make sure the numbers were balanced between those groups.
The following document is the final result of that study and is available to share or use where needed.
