  1. Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS)
    Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (CDC)
    Date Published: 6/9/2016
    Format: Text
    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) (CDC)
    Date Published: 3/2/2016
    Format: PDF
    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.

  4. Emergency Nutrition Assessment (ENA)
    Source: Action Against Hunger (ACF) (ACF)
    Date Published: 7/9/2015
    Format: Text
    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.

  6. 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 [National Institutes of Health] (NIEHS) (NIEHS)
    Date Published: 8/2014
    Format: PDF
    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.

    Annotation: The Washington Group has developed this short set of questions for use on national censuses for gathering information about limitations in basic activity functioning among national populations. The questions were designed to provide comparable data cross-nationally for populations living in a great variety of cultures with varying economic resources. The objective was to identify persons with similar types and levels of limitations in basic activity functioning, regardless of nationality or culture. This resource was identified by the NIH Disaster Research Response Program (DR2) for researchers looking for pre- and post-disaster data collection instruments.
