One objective of the Broadmoor Project is to track recovery progress and share the findings and the raw data with recovery managers, other devastated neighborhoods and communities, and with researchers studying large-scale disasters and post-disaster reconstruction. In June of 2006, the Broadmoor Project developed an ongoing housing study that surveys the condition of every property within Broadmoor at six month intervals (T1, T2, T3...Tn). This "community mapping" survey is done in conjunction with Bard College, whose students conduct the field survey research while the staff at the Belfer Center's Broadmoor Project design the research methodology and analyze the data. Every six months, the Broadmoor Project issues a report on the state of recovery progress in Broadmoor.
Developing best practices for tracking and monitoring recovery progress is an essential component of recovery management. It is the goal of this project to add to the body of thought and to stimulate the debate as to how best measure recovery after a disaster. To further that goal, we make our methodology, results, and raw data available for download below.
