Characterizing National Exposures to Infrastructure from Natural Disasters

Source(s):  RAND Corporation (RAND)

This report serves as the technical and reference document for the data, methods, and analytic approach used in the analysis of the exposure of critical infrastructure to natural disasters.

The analysis includes 11 natural hazards and five infrastructure sectors. The report documents how each infrastructure type and hazard is represented in data sets to act as a reference for any use of the data.

For each analyzed hazard, this report includes a brief background that describes potential infrastructure impacts, and relevant metrics; a list of sources used in compiling hazard data; an overview of existing methods and applications or modifications used to analyze regional exposure to varying levels of hazard severity. The report also provides an overview of all hazard and infrastructure data used to complete this analysis.
