Social and environmental indicators provide a useful basis for decision-making
because they allow the aggregation of information considered important by
managers and the community. This study aimed to correlate indicators of
social and environmental vulnerability in the state of Goiás with the urban
drainage system. The data sets available for the analyses developed in this
research refer to the results of the 2010 Demographic Census of the Brazilian
Institute of Geography and Statistics. For the development of the metrics
the Exploratory Factor Analysis technique was used. From the 3 indices
developed: environmental fragility, infrastructural and social quality, an
end was developed that encompasses all variables. The results showed that
sectors with better drainage systems (larger proportions of households with
manhole/lobe mouth and curb/guide) tend to have higher indicators of
social and infrastructural quality and lower values of environmental fragility.
