Wildland-Urban Interface Residents' Relationships with Wildfire: Variation Within and Across Communities
Synthesis across different contexts may not show important differences in relationships between wildland-urban interface. With social science, we investigate potential differences using data collected from 68 Colorado communities and heirarchial modeling. Substantial variations are found both within and across communities for many aspects of meaningful relationships with wildfire. The analysis also suggests some of the social science results will be consistent across communities. While seeking better understanding for which results are consistant and which vary, this study also provides guidance for transfering the lessons learned from wildfire across contexts.
