Table 8e shows how 20 Arctic coastal region respondents rated the ease with which they communicate coastal or marine planning information to users of their planning practice, analysis, and research. Only 20% responded that communicating coastal or marine planning information is very or somewhat easy, while 35% responded that communicating coastal or marine planning information is very or somewhat difficult.

Because other questions in this series allowed multiple responses, it is not possible to produce valid regional cross-tabulations for them.
