There are four major results from the study.
The first result is that we can predict the daily living information needed after adisaster through structural analysis of daily living information. Therefore, we first need to definethe categories of daily living information. The first category includes information about the resources which are necessary to live, the second category of dailyliving information conprises of information necessaryto acquire more abundant resources, and the third daily living information category is concerned with information to be contented as narcissistic. Sincethe change in life style over time canbe expressed through the quantitative change in the three categories of daily living information, we propose that the historical perspective of daily living information is a historical analysis of the quantitative relationship between the three cateogries of daily living information. From this historical perspective on daily living information, we supposed the existe
nce of atypical pattern in the emergence of these three categories in adisaster. Weunder stood that the necessity for first daily living information was proportional to the damage incurredin adisaster.
We showed secondly an analysis method of newspaper article digitized in a chronological orderaccording to the article number and to the article number ratio. Using this method, we were able to analyze daily living information gathered during the Hanshin-Awaji (Kobe) Earthquake by a macro point of view. We then consider the reason that explains a case contrary to what is expected from applying the theories and why acase can, at othertimes, be predicted by those theories.
We showed, in the third result, a method for analyzing the newsletters produced by the residents of the community and by which we could classify those characteristics. In other words, based on the statistical analysis of the data obtained during the Hanshin-Awaji (Kobe) Earthquake, we defined thegeneral concept that constitutes information from resident-generated newsletters according to four factors : 1. The news source, 2. The first release of information, 3. The frequency of news release and, 4. The news duration. From the inter-relation between the first release of information and the three other factors, we can classify the different characteristics of the residents newsletters into categories that we will call first, second and third period information from residents. In addition, we showed that a characteristic of the newsletters from residents divided inthree periods was that it was determined bythe quantity of first and the second daily information.
Finally, through the analysis of the newspaper and the newsletters from the residents, we described a crisismanagement system of daily living information needed to provide the first category daily living information which is necessary immediately following a disaster. Because crisis management is clearly different from normal management for the security system, we proposed aphilosophy and asystem of crisis management of daily living information thatuses the daily activity of inhabitants and citizens as its basis.
