Summary
Abstract: Global Drought Total Economic Loss Risk Deciles is a 2.5 minute grid of global drought total economic loss risks. A process of spatially allocating Gross Domestic Product (GDP) based upon the Sachs et al. (2003) methodology is utilized. First the proportional contributions of subnational units to their respective national GDP are determined using sources of various origins. The contribution rates ... View entire text

Purpose: To provide a spatial surface of the total economic impacts of global drought hazard.

Quality The population per grid cell (item Pop) is based upon the population data of Gridded Population of the World, Version 3 (GPWv3). The area per grid cell (Areakm) is calculated by subtracting from the area of the grid cell those areas that are permanently inundated as identified using VMAP (0)/Digital Chart of the World. Building upon a methodology developed by Sachs et al. (2003), a gross domestic ... View entire text
