Event Overview: Public readiness for terrorist and other hazardous events is reported for the nation as a whole, New York City, Los Angeles County, and the Washington, D.C., area, as well as for major racial/ethnic groups. Data are from one of the largest household surveys designed to focus on how public education and information influence public investment in both preparedness and avoidance activities. Multivariate modeling identifies consistent pathways through which policy and programs can increase and enhance readiness for terrorism and other hazards throughout the United States.
This event was sponsored by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START). While START receives funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed at this event or in the report are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect views of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
