An analysis of disaster prevention capability from a standpoint of social capital in Shinjuku-ku
This survey was targeted at local habitants of four areas (Yotsuya, Tansumachi, Enoki, Wakamatsu) in Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo. On August 31, 2010, the questionnaires were sent, requesting respondents to send a reply by September 28, to examine the correlation among local residents, communities and local administrations to cope with a natural disaster.Exploratory factor analyses to find a few latent background factors from many items obtained by the questionnaires to Shinjuku-ku residents were conducted. To predict the correlation of individual items and factors that existed behind them, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used.
