This paper is based on the premise that resilience can emerge as a topic of common interest only if a reasonable degree of consensus can be reached on how resilience might be measured. This is because measurement comprises the set of practices that allow one to translate concepts into technical practices that produce data. To help promote such consensus, this paper proposes a common analytical model within which the tasks of constructing resilience measurement may be specified and developed. At an operational level, the goal is to provide a resilience-focused analytical model to answer questions about what data should be collected, at what points in time, using what tools, at what levels and subject to what types of analysis.
