Going back: Radiation and intentions to return amongst households evacuated after the Great Tohoku Earthquake
Based on a survey conducted with evacuees from the Fukushima radiation-affected region of Japan we examine intentions to return, eventually to the family homes. Many respondents do not intend to return, particularly those with children, but higher income households and those who evacuated to the same town are more likely to go back. Intentions are only weakly responsive to changes in radiation, suggesting that the ongoing policy of active decontamination may have only a limited impact on eventual resettlement.
