We have developed a recovery and reconstruction calendar for clarifying the process that earthquake victims undergo in rebuilding their shattered lives. We have examined its reliability and stability and considered the generality of the process clarified by the proposed calendar. Concretely, based on results for the calendar in random surveys on the 1995 Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and the 2004 Mid-Niigata Prefecture Earthquake, we concluded that (1) the recovery and reconstruction calendar is highly reliable and stable in clarifying the recovery and reconstruction process and (2) generalization can be recognized in this process in time phases after disasters despite differences in disaster size and mode.
