The precis (submitted by the author): "Social vulnerability to disasters is the differential inability to cope with them based on socioeconomic characteristics. This study maps combined physical and social vulnerability in Revere, Massachusetts and asks to what extent poorer people suffer greater relative damages from storms. Based on a phone survey of residents of Revere's coastal floodplain, lower-income residents are found to suffer greater relative economic damages from flooding. However, reported absolute damages decrease with income after an initial peak."
