A composite Index of Social Vulnerability to Earthquake Hazard in Canton Atacames
Keywords:earthquakes, social vulnerability, resilience, uncertainty, composite neutrosophic indicator
The Atacames Canton in Ecuador is a locality deeply affected by earthquakes and requires an analysis of its social vulnerability to achieve resilience and proactivity to mitigate the damage caused. Since the phenomena involved are under an environment of uncertainty, their analysis depends on a combination of factors whose most appropriate processing is the neutrosophic multicriteria decision-making methods, because they integrate multiple data sets with scoring areas according to criteria. Therefore, the objective of this research is to develop a composite neutrosophic indicator for the analysis of the social vulnerability of earthquakes in the Canton Atacames. For the study, social vulnerability was divided into three components under an environment of uncertainty.
