Summary or description

Social vulnerability is a fundamental category to formulate prevention criteria, as well as to measure the impact and actions subsequent to the occurrence of natural or anthropic phenomena that generate adverse consequences in the persons (collectively and individually). This concept explains how the socioeconomic characteristics cause different ways of managing the risk caused by unfavorable events (natural or anthropic). In this way, based on social ulnerability as a category of analysis and the average index value as statistical technique, this research proposes a conceptual-methodological alternative to formulate territorial ordering criteria in the medium-sized cities of the state of Guerrero; Acapulco, Chilpancingo and Iguala.
