Data Identification
Abstract: The Multi-hazard Risk (MHR) Index is a composite measure of the relative likelihood of a natural hazard occurring and causing significant disruption. This index provides insight into the potential drivers of risk and capacities that can be leveraged to counteract risk. Multi-hazard risk considers the influences of hazard exposure, vulnerable populations, socio-economic, environmental and institutional factors, and infrastructure on overall risk. The index is conceptualized as Hazard exposure x (1-Reslilience) where (1-Resilience) is a measure of a country’s lack of resilience. The index is calculated as the geometric mean of hazard exposure and (1-resilience). Values range from 0-1, with 1 representing very high risk and 0 representing very low risk.

Lineage: The Multi-hazard Risk (MHR) Index is conceptualized as Hazard exposure x (1-Resilience) where (1-Resilience) is a measure of a country’s lack of resilience. The index is calculated as the geometric mean of hazard exposure and (1-resilience). Values range from 0-1, with 1 representing very high risk and 0 representing very low risk. Calculations and analysis were performed using SPSS and Excel. Tabular data were joined to the 2010 World Administrative Units from ESRI using the Country Name and 3-Digit ISO Code. The resulting GIS dataset was re-projected to Web Mercator. Much of the raw data used to build the indices can be viewed by the disaster management community through http://emops.pdc.org/emops. Metadata for these datasets can be found through http://ghin.pdc.org/ghin. For more information regarding the methodology used, contact data@pdc.org.
