Determine the indicator's value by using the following methodology:
1) Together with the local stakeholders responsible for the preparedness plan's implementation, select a limited number (3-6) of the most important preparedness measures that every at-risk household should be aware of and follow.
2) Set the minimum number (or types) of preparedness measures the respondent must be aware of to be considered as having "appropriate awareness" (for example, to know "at least 3 out of 5 measures" or to know "the two most important and at least one additional measures").
3) Conduct qualitative household survey asking a representative sample of adult respondents: "What are the most important measures the local households should take to prepare themselves for [specify the hazard]?" After the respondent replies, keep probing: "Is there anything else the households should do to prepare themselves for [specify the hazard]?"
4) To calculate the indicator's value, divide the number of respondents aware of the minimum number (or types) of preparedness measures by the total number of interviewed respondents. Multiply the result by 100 to convert it to a percentage.
