With China's entry into the stage of normalization of pandemic prevention and control, some "one size fits all" so-called "hard core" pandemic control in some communities exposed the weakness of community public-health safety &resilience. It was urgent to define a set of evaluation index systems of community public health safety resilience to guide the community in handling pandemic prevention and control, management services, and economic and social development. This paper constructed a security & resilience evaluation index system for community public health from the dimensions of "pandemic prevention and control," "economic and social," "livelihood security," and "reflective learning." Based on the survey data of 31 provincial administrative regions in China, the entropy weight TOPSIS method was used for comprehensive evaluation. Although this study attempted to construct a set of security & resilience index systems, it was not easy to cover all the local differences and diversity of the communities.
