Background and Purpose

    We announce the availability of a report produced for the Coast 
Guard, entitled ``Estimating Benefits of Reducing Recreational Boating 
Injuries: Alternative Sources of Information on Fatalities, Injuries, 
and Property Damages,'' and dated September 12, 2011. The report 
examines data on the consequences of recreational boating accidents to 
help the Coast Guard determine how our analyses of accident data can be 
enhanced to improve how we can quantify the benefits of Coast Guard 
regulations, policies, and programs.
    The report reviews available recreational boating accident data 
(fatalities, nonfatal injuries and property damage) reported in Coast 
Guard's Boating Accident Report Database (BARD) and compares this 
information to national databases. The report suggests that available 
BARD data on fatalities and the value of reductions in fatality risks 
are reasonably accurate and appropriate for use in benefit-cost 
analysis. For nonfatal injuries, the available BARD data is more 
uncertain. The report notes that nonfatal injuries in BARD are 
underreported, with the degree of underreporting increasing as the 
severity of the injury decreases. In addition, the report finds that 
the approaches used for valuation do not directly address boating-
related injuries and rely on rough proxies for willingness to pay for 
risk reductions. Regarding property damages, the report concludes that 
more research is needed to determine the accuracy of the available 
estimates.
    The Coast Guard seeks comments on the content of the report 
generally, as well as any additional data or analysis that could 
further support the report's conclusions, could provide data to the 
contrary, or that may fill in any gaps identified by the report. 
Additionally, the Coast Guard seeks comments on, as well as any 
additional data or analysis, helping to identify property damages 
related to recreational boating activities.
    This notice is issued under authority of 5 U.S.C. 552 (a).
