National Life Jacket Wear Rate Observational Study

Potential trends and indicators relating to recreational boaters and life jacket wear are revealed in this informative study by the JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. Because so many drownings could be prevented if every boater wore a life jacket, it is critical that boating safety advocates understand the circumstances and patterns in which life jackets are used in order to tailor messages and safety education programs accordingly.
