The questions asked in these quizzes are an adaptation of "rapid visual screening" techniques developed by engineers to quickly identify residential buildings with potential problems in earthquakes. Obviously, they are not a substitute for a detailed structural evaluation. For more information on the development of this quiz, you may look at the DOCUMENTATION for the quiz (an 18-page Adobe Acrobat PDF).

ABAG, the Association of Bay Area Governments, is the regional planning and services agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area.
