Estimados de Resiliencia Comunitaria (Community Resilience Estimates) – U.S. Census Bureau

noviembre 13, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm AST

Gratuito

The U.S. Census Bureau will provide a webinar on the Community Resilience Estimates (CRE) for Puerto Rico, which provide an easily understood metric for a community’s capacity to withstand and recover from a disaster – such as a hurricane or hazardous event. It expands on the standard CRE, which focuses on the United States.

Using restricted microdata from the Puerto Rico Community Survey (PRCS) and small area estimation methods, the experimental estimates measure social vulnerability to disasters at the state/commonwealth, municipio and census tract geographic levels.

Social vulnerability is measured based on 10 PRCS indicators:

Poverty status.
Disability status.
Number of caregivers in the households.
Unit-level crowding.
Vehicle access.
Broadband internet.
Employment.
Education.
Age.
Health insurance.
