Abstract

<p>In order to develop a new method to evaluate quantitatively activities of voluntary organizations for disaster prevention, we conduct two kinds of survey. Based on obtained data by the first survey which was conducted on leaders of highly active voluntary organizations in Tokyo metropolitan, we estimated importance weight of each content of voluntary disaster prevention activities. Combining the weights and obtained data by the second survey on leaders of voluntary organizations in Hitachinaka city, we calculated evaluation scores which indicated degrees of activities of the each organization. Then, we categorized the organizations into ten groups by cluster analysis method and examined their weak points which required some improvement. </p>
