Abstract

<p>In this study, we clarify the actual conditions and backgrounds of isolated deaths at temporary housing and recovery housing in disaster area, conducting statistical analyses based on death certificates. The results are as follows, 1) The ages of those who die alone are higher at recovery housing than temporary housing. At recovery housing, it also takes longer for discovery. The main reason for this is young people under age fifty with isolation risks such as remaining unemployed and single. 2) At temporary housing, family and neighbors mitigate the isolation risks, while their roles decline at recovery housing. 3) Location of recovery housing has little connection with isolation of disaster victims. One of the factors seems to be that the isolated condition has already been established before moving into recovery housing. Community-conscious safety nets should be in place especially in the early stage of restoring stable living.</p>
