Title: The National Survey of Recreational Boating.
OMB Control Number: 21150638.
Summary: The mission of the national program of the U.S. Coast Guard on Safety of Recreational Boating to minimize the loss of life, the personal injury, the property damage, and the environmental impact associated with the use of recreational boats. The purpose of the national survey of recreational boating is to capture information from recreational boaters nationwide so we can better serve their needs and more effectively accomplish our mission. Information captured from the survey will enable us to better understand current boating practices, the types and number of boats used in each State, and the various types of activities associated with recreational boating. Our collecting this type of information from boaters across the nation is critical in our efforts to implement effective safety initiatives and activities with our partners in the States.
Need: In compliance with the Government Performance and Results Act
(GPRA), the collection of information is necessary to: (1) Link the
effectiveness of the national program to reductions in a person's risk
of having a boating accident, (2) improve the effectiveness of the
program by implementing welldefined goals, and (3) enhance
policymaking by the Administration and Congress, spending decisions,
and superintendence of the program using the best performance measures and safety indicators.
Respondents: Recreational boaters.
Frequency: Every three to five years.
Burden: The estimated burden is 11,458 hours a year.
