thanks for the reply. I am completely new, like I have never built a model myself but is going to do some forms of simple prototype for my dissertation so I will have some experience before I actually start my masters degree.
What about trying to simulate how bonding social capital shape individuals’ risk perception (aka social networks of individuals) [e.g. people who are in contact closely on a daily basis may share similar risk perception], then given their varying perception, to understand the relationship between risk perception and actually conducting preparedness behaviours of flooding?
I am interested in the risk perception paradox as well (i.e. how high perception does not always lead to actually conducting more preparedness behaviours).
Would that be possible with ABM and how are data collected for such kind of model?
