National Recreational Boating Survey

Survey published by the United States Coast Guard detailing boating participation, boat ownership, use, and safety to achieve comprehensive population coverage data, generate high quality measurement of a variety of boat features and boating activities, and produce data to estimate different boating exposure rates. Its primary purpose was to develop a new system of surveys (e.g., recreational boating participants, boating trips) and methods (e.g., survey instruments, sampling, weighting) to produce reliable and valid measures of the effectiveness of elements of the national recreational boating safety program.
