This report is an analysis of 127 monthly reports for 1964-1974 of ships over 3,000 gross tons from the Liverpool Underwriters Association. Casualties caused by collisions, specifically for three proposed nuclear ship routes were studied worldwide. It was found that collisions and groundings remained constant for this period, while world fleets increased. The data collected for nuclear ship routes were used in a report on probability of collisions on selected routes.
