(the longer the vacancy the higher the average score) R-square: 0.340 N: 287,190 To adjust for this greater recovery challenge, the results of the analysis above are used in the following model for 2008: Vacancy Risk Score = 0.010695 (Constant) + 0.347154 Percent of homes in Census Tract with serious damage + 0.195913 Home with major-high or severe damage The risk score is then aggregated for each disaster and divided by the total number of housing units with more than very minor damage. That is, we determine a per-damaged home recovery challenge risk score. Such a risk factor can be a useful tool for adjusting grants so that states with a higher risk for long-term recovery challenges get a somewhat higher grant because of this risk. [FR Doc.
