Why are incidents in USA not reported to USPA? Can't Post

The USPA has acknowledged that the rate of reporting of skydiving incidents in the USA is extremely low:

Why are skydiving incidents in the USA not reported to the USPA?

While the approach that the USPA is taking is to wag a finger at S&TAs and jumpers, I suspect that the failure is probably due to more than simple laziness.

-Why do you report/not report incidents that you are involved in?

-Why do you think that others report/don't report incidents that they are involved in?

-If you are/were an S&TA, DZM, or DZO why do you report/not report incidents?

Without good incident statistics it is very hard to identify our safety problems and/or evaluate the effectiveness of safety efforts.

It is my opinion that if we had complete reporting of all skydiving incidents in the US, which required evaluation and or treatment by a physician, we would be astonished at the non-fatal injury rate.
