    Direct Count: Actual count of visitors by using paid admissions or registrations, clicker counts, etc.

    Indirect Count: Estimate based on information related to number of visitors such as raffle tickets sold, redeemed discount certificates, brochures handed out, visual estimates.

    Representative Survey: Information collected directly from individual visitors or participants. This is a highly structured data collection tool, based on a defined random sample of participants. That can be reliably projected to the entire population attending an event.

    Informal Survey: Information collected directly from individual visitors or participants in a nonrandom manner that is not representative of all visitors or participants. Informal survey results cannot be projected to the entire visitor population.

    Structured Estimate: Estimate produced by computing known information related to the event or location. For example, one jurisdiction divided the square footage of the event area by the international building code allowance for persons (3 square feet).

    Please enter notes about the specific type of method used to determine the attendance count (such as vehicle counts, raffle tickets sold, etc.). Submit a sample tracking form, if available.
