Table 6. Decomposition analysis of the difference between values suggested for the total allowable commercial catch (TACC) by divers and owners. Note that “other” represents that portion of the difference that is unaccounted for by the model, i.e., unaccounted for by these variables. The mean difference is 0.52 (based on modeled estimates).

Factor Contribution to difference in standardized TACC estimates (0.52) % contribution to difference in standardized TACC estimates
