  • Description:
    Third Edition 3.1 The Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) is an epidemiologic technique designed to provide public health leaders and emergency managers household-based information about a community. It is quick, reliable, relatively inexpensive, and flexible. CASPER uses valid statistical methods to gather information and can be conducted throughout the disaster cycle (preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation) and in non-disaster situations. The information generated can be used to initiate public health action; identify information gaps; facilitate disaster planning, response, and recovery activities; allocate resources; and assess new or changing needs in the community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published the first edition of the CASPER toolkit in 2009 and second edition in 2012 to provide those in the public health community a step-by-step guide on conducting a CASPER. We developed this third edition to address partner feedback, provide more detailed instructions, and incorporate the broad scope of CASPER uses and potential impacts. This toolkit is designed to be a general guideline. Public health personnel, emergency management officials, academics, or others who wish to assess household-level public health needs will find this toolkit useful for rapid data collection for actionable decision-making during disaster or non-emergency situations.
