Public Registration and Inquiry Database of Emergencies (PRIDE)

PRIDE data is used to provide information on the location of people affected by disaster. It is managed by the New Zealand Red Cross.

Description of key content

The data collects information on the demographics of registrants, their usual permanent and temporary location, and other information related to the registration. Items recorded include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Nationality
  • Permanent residence
  • Temporary residence
  • Relationship to prime registrant
  • Reason for registration
  • Time and place of registration.

Start date of data collection

PRIDE data collection was initiated in response to the 22 February 2011 Canterbury earthquake.

Frequency and scope of data collection

Ongoing. At 30 March 2011 the dataset contained 47,700 registrations.

Methods of data collection

Data is collated from many sources, including government welfare agencies, welfare centre registrations, and direct contact with New Zealand Red Cross.

Potential weaknesses

No information is available about if, or when, a registrant returned to their usual residence.
