The Why, How, What, When, and by Whom of Assessments
The reasons for assessment
Assessments are undertaken to determine:

the range of communities affected by a disaster,

what impacts and consequences there have been on the various communities, and

the various community needs.
Means of assessment
Means of assessment include targeting sources from which to collect data. As well as individuals and families the following community sources may provide especially relevant information:

Emergency service managers who can supply information about the nature and scope of the disaster and any special features,

Disaster recovery managers,

Community leaders, members/services,

Health/welfare system, and

Local Government.
Prior history of disasters in the area may be obtained from these or other sources.
The above sources may be accessed by attending briefings, visiting places/people in formal and informal meetings, by convening meetings and by accessing previous community evaluations including socio-demographic profiles.
