Who Participates in Building Disaster Resilient Communities: A Cluster-Analytic Approach

The Los Angeles County Community Disaster Resilience project is a community-based program to improve disaster resilience. Baseline measures of resilience-related attitudes and practices among targeted communities were collected prior to the implementation of the intervention. This study, “Who Participates in Building Disaster Resilient Communities: A Cluster-Analytic Approach,” by Rachel M. Adams, MPH, and colleagues, identified community disaster resilience behavior patterns and assessed their associations with sociodemographic and social cognitive characteristics. It was published in the January/February 2017 issue of the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice.
