Study of Factors Affecting Wildlife Law Enforcement Agent Productivity

The relationships of environmental factors, agent personal background, enforcement methods, and season with enforcement efficiency were analyzed. Three major interactions among independent variables were detected. Analysis of covariance by multiple regression indicated that methods of enforcement were more closely associated with enforcement efficiency than other categories of independent variables. Agent rank was found to be more strongly related to the dependent variable than the single most important environmental attribute (intensity of water recreation).
