    Abstract

    This study surveyed evacuees from Miyagi, Japan after the Great East Japan Earthquake to elucidate their living environments and intentions. Comparing living environments among various types of temporary housing, their levels of satisfaction differed. Over half of the residents of prefab housing were the elderly and economically vulnerable people, who were highly dissatisfied with their living situations. Among them were households living apart from their families due to space limitations. However, homeowners who wished to rebuild their damaged houses tended to be younger and have higher annual incomes than those who preferred to keep living in public housing for evacuees.
