Part 1
What does this table tell us about the identities of people visiting England's national parks?
Table 1 (The Open University,2011, p23) uses quantitative evidence to show the social identities of people who visit national parks in England, it also provides results for visits to other kinds of areas in England. A collective Identity is a form of social identity and refers to a group that have something in common like age for example. The Table uses ACORN which divides people into five socio-economic categories, it is based on data collected from various means such as census data and lifestyle surveys. (You could have also mentioned what you will discuss in the subsequent essay).

Looking at the ACORN classification of trip takers wealthy achievers and comfortably off are the most likely to take trips and visit national parks, with 31% and 27% of trip takers visiting national parks. This could be connected to income levels and lifestyle. People in the urban prosperity category are the least likely to visit with only 4% visiting national parks and only 10% taking any trip, this could suggest that they don't take many trips due a busy lifestyle and if they do they tend to stay in more urban areas. (It is more likely because urban dwellers have cultural entertainments on their door step).

This could be contributed to the cost of the visit and access. However the table does not seem to take into account other working categories . (Okay, but the issues probably relate to mobility rather than cost, as the public spaces of the park are free).
such as part time, self employed or unemployed, it would be interesting to see this data so a bigger picture could be built up.

In regards to transport it appears that owning or having...
