Title

Data on Household Disaster Preparedness for U.S. States and Metropolitan Areas

Description

This dataset contains model estimates of the proportion of the adult population who report having supplies at home to use in case of a disaster, at the state level and Core-Based Statistical Area (CBSA) level in the U.S.

“state_2015_table.csv” contains estimated proportion of adults (18+) who have set aside supplies at home in case of a disaster at the state level for 2015. “cbsa_2015_table.csv” contains estimated proportion of adults (18+) who have set aside supplies at home in case of a disaster at the Core-Based Statistical Area level for 2015.

Methodology

Estimates and margins of error are derived from a multilevel regression and poststratification (MRP) model based on national surveys of U.S. adults (18+) conducted from April through November 2015 (n=11,260). Margins of error represent 95% prediction intervals. Estimates were validated against separate state-level surveys and American Housing Survey data for selected metropolitan areas. See associated publication for details.
