Table 7 Prevalence of the perceived risk of being flooded in the next five years (indices 1 and 2)

From: Development and validation of five behavioral indices of flood adaptation

Level of Adaptation to Flooding % Who Reported a Perceived Risk of Being Flooded Confidence Interval (95%) Coeff. of Variation (%) Odds Ratio Confidence Interval (95%) Pr > χ2
Index 1: Pre-alert behaviors    Correlation with level of adaptation to flooding = 0.25, p < .05
Adaptation 34.14 [30.38–37.91] 5.62 2.02 [1.63–2.51] < 0.0001
Non-adaptation 20.39 [17.94–22.84] 6.12 1.00   
Index 2: Behaviors to carry out after the alert is issued    Correlation with level of adaptation to flooding = 0.23, p < .05
Adaptation 56.70 [50.41–62.98] 5.63 1.80 [1.30–2.51] 0.0004
Non-adaptation 42.05 [36.11–48.00] 7.18 1.00
