The Most Dangerous Boating Crafts in the U.S.
Visualizing Boating Accident Statistics
Every year, the U.S. Coast Guard compiles statistics on reported recreational boating accidents. These statistics are derived from accident reports that are filed by the owners / operators of recreational vessels involved in accidents.
The amount of data collected is massive and sometimes overwhelming. To help visualize some of these statistics we have put together the following graphic showing some of the 2007 data:
- Boating crafts with the top casualty numbers
- Top known primary contributing factors of accidents
- Accidents by type of body of water
Any comments or feedback about the statistics?
