    Date Published: 6/9/2016
    Annotation: The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six types of health-risk behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults: behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence; sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV infection; alcohol and other drug use; tobacco use; unhealthy dietary behaviors; and inadequate physical activity. YRBSS also measures the prevalence of obesity and asthma among youth and young adults. Questionnaires are available for both high school and middle school aged participants. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  2. BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Module
    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 3/2/2016
    Annotation: The BRFSS (Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) module was adapted from the original CDC-Kaiser ACE Study and is used to collect information on child abuse and neglect, and household challenges. Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity. The ACE score, a total sum of the different categories of ACEs reported by participants, is used to assess cumulative childhood stress. Study findings repeatedly reveal a graded dose-response relationship between ACEs and negative health and well-being outcomes across the life course. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  3. Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA)
    Source: Action Against Hunger (ACF)
    Format: Text
    Date Published: 7/9/2015
    Annotation: The purpose of the Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA) for Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions (SMART) is to make nutrition assessments and mortality rate calculations in emergency situations as easy and reliable as possible. It focuses on the most important indicators (anthropometric and mortality data), checks the plausibility of the entered data, and gives out an automatic report. Since the software cannot explain why children are malnourished or mortality rates are high, the results of the survey have to be complemented with other information (e.g., from the Food Security part of ENA or discussions with key informants); collection of this additional information on the household level has a high risk to reduce the quality of the anthropometric and mortality data. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  9. Proximity to Natural Gas Wells and Reported Health Status: Results of a Household Survey in Washington County, Pennsylvania
    Source: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 8/2014
    Annotation: This Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) questionnaire was used in a community near natural gas wells in Pennsylvania. This assessment of reported health symptoms and health status is based on questions drawn from publicly available surveys. Symptom questions, covering a range of organ systems that had been mentioned in published reports, asked respondents whether they or any household members had experienced each condition during the past year. The health assessment also asked a number of general yes/no questions about concerns of environmental hazards in the community, such as whether respondents were satisfied with air quality, water quality, soil quality, environmental noise, odors, and traffic, but did not specifically mention natural gas wells, hydraulic fracturing, or other natural gas extraction activities. The survey was pretested with focus groups in the study area in collaboration with a community-based group and revised to ensure comprehensibility of questions. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  14. Athens Insomnia Scale
    Source: University of Toronto
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 9/2013
    Annotation: Insomnia is widely measured using the Athens Insomnia Scale (AIS). Insomnia is measured by assessing eight factors: five factors are related to nocturnal sleep, and three factors are related to daytime dysfunction. These measures are rated on a 0-3 scale, and the sleep is finally evaluated from the cumulative score of all factors and reported as an individual's sleep outcome. AIS is considered to be an effective tool in sleep analysis, and is validated in various countries based on local patients. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  18. Community Health Assessment Following Mercaptan Spill: Appendices A, B, C, and D
    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 11/30/2012
    Annotation: This Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) questionnaire was used in a community following a Mercaptan spill in Alabama. Prior to each interview, the teams completed a tracking form (Appendix A) to record the outcome of every interview attempt. This information served as the basis for calculating the response rates. In the event that field teams encountered a household with urgent needs that presented an immediate threat to life or health, they were to encourage or assist the household to call emergency services (911). In the event that calling 911 was not appropriate, the teams would complete a confidential referral form (Appendix B). After gaining verbal consent (Appendix C), one eligible household member (18 years of age or older) from the family was selected to speak for all household members when responding to the questionnaire (Appendix D). Appendices A, B, C, and D can be found on pages 28 to 41 of the resource. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

  19. NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) Alert: Preventing Occupational Respiratory Disease from Exposures Caused by Dampness in Office Buildings, Schools, and Other Nonindustrial Buildings: Appendix A: Building Inspection Checklist
    Source: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
    Format: PDF
    Date Published: 11/2012
    Annotation: Research studies show that exposures to building dampness and mold are associated with respiratory symptoms such as asthma, hypersensitivity, and other health impacts. These subsequent illnesses occur in part from a lack of knowledge and understanding of the nature and severity resulting from dampness and mold in buildings. This checklist, located in Appendix A, pages 19-21, describes methods for identifying evidence of leaks or dampness that can be addressed before extensive damage occurs. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.

    Date Published: 10/2012
    Annotation: This toolbox is a multi-dimensional set of brief measures assessing cognitive, emotional, motor, and sensory function from ages 3 to 85, meeting the need for a standard set of measures that can be used as a "common currency" across diverse study designs and settings. It uses multiple constructs of the four domains: Cognition, Emotion, Motor, and Sensation. Cognition and Emotion have the more relevant instruments for post-disaster data collection. Cognition includes Executive Function, Attention, Episodic Memory, Language, Processing Speed, and Working Memory. Emotion includes Psychological Well-Being, Social Relationships, Stress and Self Efficacy, and Negative Affect.
