Use your BRAINS in Evaluating Boating Accident Risks

BRAINS is a tool that enables you to isolate the effect of a specific variable, or a group of variables, on the probability of having a specific type of boating accident (based on the relationships between variables in the Boating Accident Report Database (BARD), which is the universe of all reported accidents).

The Coast Guard does not know if variable relationships of non-reported accidents are similar to those reported in BARD. BRAINS also gives you the flexibility to make predictions using variable combinations that are not frequently occurring in BARD.
