Expected average annual fatalities from earthquakes

Metadata Updated: July 9, 2019

This data set portrays the expected average annual fatalities from earthquakes determined by using PAGER's vulnerability functions that are unique to each country. These relationships are highly approximate and are a proxy approach to quantifying earthquake losses. Accuracy can vary by an order of magnitude for places that lack empirical loss data.Site specific soil factors based on Vs30 shear wave velocities were implemented using a simple topographic proxy technique (Allen and Wald, 2009).
