MRIP Data User Seminar: Statistical Methods and Procedures
The second in a series of training sessions for stock assessors, fisheries analysts, and other Marine Recreational Information Program data users.
This presentation provides an overview of the Marine Recreational Information Program’s survey designs and statistical methods, with a focus on the program’s three general fishing surveys:
- The Access Point Angler Intercept Survey (APAIS), which collects shore, private boat, and for-hire catch-per-trip data from anglers;
- The Fishing Effort Survey (FES), which collects shore and private boat effort data from coastal households; and
- The For-Hire Survey (FHS), which collects for-hire effort data from charter and headboat captains.
Participants will learn about the component estimates produced from each survey, as well as how these component estimates come together to produce estimates of total recreational catch and effort. These topics are documented in sections two, three, five, and six of the MRIP Survey Design and Statistical Methods Manual. An introduction to survey statistics and our estimation methods can be found on our Survey Statistics Overview and Estimation Methods Overview webpages.
This event is part of a series. For more information, view the complete MRIP Data User Seminar Series schedule. To receive updates about the seminar series and other news and information from the Marine Recreational Information Program, subscribe to our email notification service.
