DATA ALERT: The "Family Resilience" is based on the responses to 4 survey items: When your family faces problems, how often are you likely to do each of the following: 1) talk together about what to do; 2) work together to solve our problems; 3) know we have strengths to draw on; 4) stay hopeful even in difficult times. For a family to qualify as demonstrating resilience, a response of either "all of the time" or "most of the time" on all four items is required.
