MetadataShow full item record
This data report presents data produced as part of the PhD project of Claudia Fongar. The aim of this study is to establish a baseline for green space management in Norwegian municipalities by describing managers’ perspectives on place-keeping. The key research questions addressed are: (1) What are the characteristics of Norwegian place-keeping? (2) How does place-keeping differ across Norwegian municipalities? This data report is based on the analysis of a survey that has been sent out to all Norwegian municipalities (425) in October 2017. The questions of the survey are based on the concept of place-keeping (Dempsey et al., 2014), which was used to conceptualise management. Questions contained are directed towards seven dimensions of place keeping: I. Organisation, II. Maintenance, III. Partnerships, IV. Evaluation, V. Strategies, VI. Funding, VII. Quality as a result of place-keeping processes. Survey data DOI: 10.18712/NSD-NSD2623-V1
