From: Risk-communication capability for public health emergencies varies by community diversity

Figure 1

Risk-communication capability and percentage of non-English speakers: participants were asked at the end of the exercise to rate their community's ability to: (1) communicate with the general public about up to date outbreak information, disease control requirements, individual risk reduction, when and where to seek medical care [blue line in graph]; (2) communicate with the public to minimize fear [green line in graph]; (3) communicate with marginalized population groups through trusted sources [beige line in graph]. Responses were on a Likert scale, ranging from 1(insufficient) to 3(exceeds expectations). Mean and 95% C.I. are displayed for individuals grouped by the percentage of the population in their communities speaking a language other than English at home.
