Information Collection Request
Title: The National Recreational Boating Survey.
OMB Control Number: 1625-0089.
Summary: The mission of the U.S. Coast Guard's National Recreational Boating Safety (RBS) Program is to minimize the loss of life, personal injury, property damage, and environmental impact associated with the use of recreational boats. The National Recreational Boating Survey information collection enables the Coast Guard to better identify safety priorities, coordinate and focus research efforts, and encourage consistency in the information that is collected as well as methods of analysis that are employed. Working with our State partners, collecting this type of information from boaters across the nation is essential in our efforts to implement effective accident prevention strategies.
Need: The National Recreational Boating Survey is needed as a means for the Coast Guard to: (1) Collect reliable and consistent data for use in developing valid safety performance measures, (2) collect information in regard to the changing demographics of boaters, the numbers of boats and type of boating activity essential for national RBS program direction and policy, and (3) better define and measure the effectiveness of RBS program activities in reducing the number of boating accidents.
Respondents: Recreational boaters.
Frequency: Every two to three years.
Burden Estimate: The estimated burden remains the same, 11,458 hours a year.Start Signature
Dated: July 1, 2005.
