English: % of target population reporting preparedness to face [specify the given hazard]
French: % de la population cible déclarant être prêt à faire face à [précisez le danger donné]
Portuguese: % da população-alvo que reporta prontidão para enfrentar [especifique o risco]
Czech: % cílové populace uvádějící svoji připravenost čelit [specifikujte daný hazard]
What is its purpose?
The indicator identifies the extent to which the target population feels prepared to face a specific hazard. Theoretically, the more prepared people are, the less vulnerable they should feel. It is an important indicator of a disaster preparedness intervention’s outcome.
How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data
Collect the following data by conducting individual interviews with a representative sample of your target household members:
RECOMMENDED SURVEY QUESTION (Q) AND POSSIBLE ANSWERS (A)
Q1: If [specify the hazard] occurs, to what extent do you feel prepared to face it and overcome it safely?
1) not at all prepared
2) only a little bit prepared
3) somewhat prepared
4) well prepared
5) does not know
To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of respondents reporting being “somewhat prepared” and “well prepared” by the total number of respondents (exclude those whose answer was "does not know"). Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
Dissagregate the data by gender, age group or a specific vulnerable group.
