Global Multihazard Frequency and Distribution

Abstract: Global Multihazard Frequency and Distribution is a 2.5 minute grid presenting a simple

multihazard index based solely on summated single-hazard decile values. The hazards of interest include cyclones, droughts,

earthquakes, floods, landslides, and volcanoes. This data set is further enriched by the inclusion of data pertaining to population,

Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and transportation infrastructure. This dataset is the result of collaboration among the Columbia

University Center for Hazards and Risk Research (CHRR), International Bank for Reconstruction and Development/The World Bank, and

Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).

Purpose: To provide insight into the frequency and distribution of multihazard
