Global Earthquake Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles

Abstract: Global Earthquake Proportional Economic Loss Risk Deciles is a 2.5 minute grid of earthquake 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
