The report describes the results of the continuation of a project to collect and analyze habitability data from shelter exercises held in conjunction with civil defense training courses. About 1,300 questionnaires were received from students, mostly associated with CDUEP courses. In addition, 60 Instructor Forms, in which instructors summarized their recent shelter exercise experiences, were returned to AIR. Among the independent variables that were considered in the analysis were 1 shelterees prior expectations of the shelter stay, 2 length of shelter stay, 3 geographical area, and 4 sex of the student. As a second part of the report, an experimental shelteree registration form for use in large shelters is described. This form can be filled out in the absence of writing implements and also provides a modest data handling capability for the shelter administration team. The registration form can be used for research purposes in exercises, as well as stocked for use in shelters. Author
