Global Flood Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles
Entry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_FLOOD_PELRD


Summary
Abstract: Global Flood Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles is a 2.5 minute grid of flood hazard economic loss as proportions of Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

per analytical unit. Estimates of GDP at risk are based on regional economic loss rates derived from historical records of the Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT). Loss rates are weighted by

the hazard's frequency and distribution. The ... View entire text
