ABSTRACT

Cost-Effective Housing Systems for Disaster Relief: Cost-Effective Analysis of Pre-Selected Housing Systems; Volume 5   [open pdf - 2MB]

"This Task Report presents the approach and results of the cost-effectiveness analysis of 13 temporary housing systems pre-selected in Task I-B-2 (Volume 4) [Cost-Effective Housing Systems for Disaster Relief: Evaluation of Applicable Housing Systems Technology (Volume 4)]. The preceding analysis in Task I identified potentially applicable technology by surveying the entire range of currently available housing systems and screening out of those products that did not meet a set of first-level criteria. Systems passing the test of this broad and mainly qualitative analysis were pre-selected for quantitative analysis in this Task. The 'cost per family assisted' for a given housing system was determined to be the best measure for comparing cost-effectiveness. It is defined as the cumulative average cost incurred by the government over the average useful life of a given housing unit divided by the cumulative number of families who used that unit."
