1 ISE - Texas A&M University 1/17 Identifying social network and mobile technology use in Hurricane Sandy DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research ISE - Texas A&M University Identifying social network and mobile technology use and its correlation with household evacuation behavior in Hurricane Sandy Justin Yates, Tom Ferris, Erick Moreno Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering Texas A&M University Introduction Background Approach Results Next Steps Student Researchers Mahmoud El-Sherif (ISE, Graduate) Jae Ho Lee (RPTS, Graduate) Monica Tellam (RPTS, Undergraduate) David Matarrita Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Sci. Texas A&M University This project is funded by the National Science Foundation

2 ISE - Texas A&M University 2/17 Identifying social network and mobile technology use in Hurricane Sandy DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research ISE - Texas A&M University Introduction Quick Background Research Approach Preliminary Results Next Steps Introduction Background Approach Results Next Steps

3 ISE - Texas A&M University 3/17 Identifying social network and mobile technology use in Hurricane Sandy DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research ISE - Texas A&M University Quick Background Existing literature in evacuee behavior – Lindell, Sorensen, Eisenman, etc. Existing literature in social network analysis – Wasserman and Faust, Scott, etc. Emerging literature: – Butts (social network structure) – Sutton (communication via social networks) Introduction Background Approach Results Next Steps

4 ISE - Texas A&M University 4/17 Identifying social network and mobile technology use in Hurricane Sandy DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research ISE - Texas A&M University Quick Background Observations: – Key considerations when planning evacuation: Perceived safety (past exerpiences) Delivery of information (face-to-face, radio/tv, etc.) Perceived storm severity (cat 1, cat 2, cat 3) Hypothesis: Social media and mobile technology are changing the ways in which individuals obtain, deliver and perceive information when planning an evacuation. Introduction Background Approach Results Next Steps

5 ISE - Texas A&M University 5/17 Identifying social network and mobile technology use in Hurricane Sandy DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research ISE - Texas A&M University Research Approach Questions of Focus 1.What percentage of households use mobile technology during an evacuation? 2.How frequently are mobile devices and social networks used and what content is being viewed/posted? 3.To what extent is information being used dynamically during evacuation? Introduction Background Approach Results Next Steps

6 ISE - Texas A&M University 6/17 Identifying social network and mobile technology use in Hurricane Sandy DIMACS/CCICADA Workshop S&T Innovations in Hurricane Sandy Research ISE - Texas A&M University Research Approach Mail Survey – 1,100 random households in Monmouth, NJ – Mandatory evacuation order – Diverse demographics – Comparatively less storm damage Tailored Design Method (Dillman) – 3 waves (postcard survey) – Cash incentive in 1 st wave Introduction Background Approach Results Next Steps
