Abstract


In fact, human beings are always facing the most basic needs which are the driving force of their movements, actions, and behaviors. People have different needs concerning living conditions, family, age, education, and job. So they behave according to the needs they are facing. Therefore, an analysis of humans' basic needs provides a better understanding of causes and motivations behind individuals' behavioral and this understanding is an essential step in providing suitable education as well as reducing the behavioral and psychological problems. Like all other municipal communities, Shiraz has been affected during the past half-century by changes such as the industrial revolution and the development of technology. Besides, such changes have both positive and negative consequences. The objective of this research was the recreational need assessment of 15 64 Years Old Citizenes in Shiraz City in three dimensions of individual, environmental-social and cultural. The research method was a descriptive survey. The statistical population of the study consisted male and female citizen of Shiraz from which 496 were selected using stage sampling method (appropriate to sample size). The research instrument was a researcher questionnaire containing 65 close ended questions. The reliability of the questionnaire proved to be 0/96 using Cornbrash's alpha coefficient and validity of the questionnaire was a superficial and content validity. The data was analyzed both through descriptive (frequency, percentage and standard deviation) and inferential (one-variable t-test, Independent-sample t-test, One way analyzed of variance, LSD test and Freidman) statistics.
