Abstract

This article studies displacement after a disaster using large-scale survey methods in Aceh and North Sumatra after the 2004 tsunami. It illustrates how the combination of population-based survey methods, satellite imagery and multivariate statistical analyses has the potential to provide new insights into vulnerability, mobility, and impacts of major disasters on population well-being. The comparison reveals that migration after a disaster is less selective overall than migration in other contexts. It concludes that low levels of socioeconomic status and education were not predictive of moving after the tsunami, although for those who did move, they were predictive of displacement to a camp rather than a private home
