The study assesses the desirability of feasibility studies of population evacuation. Among the major factors affecting feasibility, public acceptance of relocation concepts must rank high. Four national attitudinal surveys concluded during the past year give significant evidence of how different population segments view the desirability of an evacuation program. The data support the conclusion that crisis relocation planning is acceptable to most Americans, and that the sentiments revealed in the national studies establish supportive, though passive, attitudes which make it altogether possible to proceed both with feasibility assessments, and in terms of acceptability, with actual planning.
