Summary: This work presents a methodology to assess the seismic vulnerability of a set ofstructures over a specific region. Using a simplified inference method we estimate theconditions of the structures in order to recommend either rehabilitation or a detailedanalysis. The procedure is based on the implementation of different sampling schemes to the region surveyed considered as the objective population. The estimated conditionfor sampled structures is compared with the condition observed in the objectivepopulation census, in order to show that the procedure is reliable and economic. Inaddition we present a method to evaluate and assign a vulnerability index (VI). Thenthis VI is used to design vulnerability maps. In addition we assume that the resultsyielded here will contribute to implement future seismic risk studies.Keywords: Seismic vulnerability, seismic risk, inference, sampling.
