Validating commonly-used indicators for community resilience measurement
Donghwan Gu, Maria Dillard, Michael Gerst, Jarrod Loerzel
This paper quantitatively examines indicators frequently used to measure community resilience. Based on existing frameworks and methodologies rooted in multiple disciplines, a set of 18 indicators were identified as being most prevalent. A data-driven approach was then employed to explore the appropriateness of indicator selections by comparing different arrays of variables, as well as patterns across time and space. In exploring both internal and external validity, the importance of conducting validation studies of indicators intended for decision support is highlighted. This empirical approach to indicator validation will support practitioners and policymakers looking to measure and monitor resilience in their communities.
