Combining the American Housing Survey and the American Community Survey to Produce Information Useful in Public Emergency Situations: An Exploratory Analysis   [open pdf - 566KB]

From the executive summary: "This research project explores the possibility of using small area statistical techniques to generate for areas not covered by the American Housing Survey (AHS) information that would be useful in preparing for or responding to a disaster and that is available only in the AHS. The study experienced difficulty in identifying variables that would be of obvious help in disasters situations. [...] The results are only mildly encouraging."
