People with disabilities are known to be more vulnerable to the effects of leisure constraints than those without disabilities as a result of their physical and/or cognitive conditions and the negative public attitudes toward impairments. In this regard, latent demand, representing the extent to which individuals have unfulfilled desire for participation, may be more clearly witnessed among people with disabilities. Using a sample of Koreans with mobility disabilities, this study aims to examine the developmental mechanism of latent demand for recreation participation. The results of this study suggest that several elements of leisure constraints negotiation process (i.e., constraints, negotiation strategies, and motivations) are closely associated with latent demand. Based on study findings, we discuss different policies that help people with disabilities diminish their levels of unmet desire.
