Global Multihazard Total Economic Loss Risk DecilesEntry ID: CIESIN_CHRR_NDH_MULTI_TELRD
Abstract: Global Multihazard Total Economic Loss Risk Deciles is a 2.5 minute grid of global multihazard total economic loss risks. First, for each of the considered hazards (cyclones, droughts, earthquakes, floods, landslides, and volcanoes), subnational distributions of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) are computed using a methodology developed from Sachs et al. (2003). Where applicable, the contributions of ... subnational units to national GDP estimates, the contribution ratio, are determined using data of varied origin. World Bank Development Indicators are substituted for GDP estimates of varied origin and the subnational GDP is estimated using the fore mentioned contribution ratios. A subnational, per capita GDP is derived and a final GDP estimate per grid cell is made based on grid cell population density. A raw, total economic loss is computed per grid cell using a regional economic loss rate derived from EM-DAT records. To more accurately reflect the confidence surrounding the economic loss estimate, the range of losses are classified into deciles, 10 classes of an approximately equal number of grid cells. A multihazard index is generated by summing the top three deciles of the individual hazards. 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).
The data in American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) and dBASE (DBF) formats and a map in Portable Document Format (PDF) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) formats are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To identify areas of the world that are at greater risk of multihazard total economic loss.

Quality ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: The carrier phase observations are accurate to a few centimeters, once biases have been removed.
LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: To become part of the CORS network, each site must pass through NGS' site criteria standards and maintain its integrity. Automated routines at NGDC pull data staged by NGS at regular intervals.
COMPLETENESS REPORT: Data ... written to the CLASS archive is reviewed for completeness. Automated routines perform daily checks for file names and file sizes, and also aided by the internal checksum of GNU zip compression as data is written to tape. Any faulty data is removed from the archive.
HORIZONTAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT: The horizontal coordinates of the GPS site, specifically the GPS antenna location, are accurate to about a centimeter once biases are removed.
VERTICAL POSITIONAL ACCURACY REPORT: The vertical coordinates of the GPS site, specifically the GPS antenna location, are accurate to about 2 centimeters.
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: GNSS observational data from sites are ingested by NGS and are posted to the NGS online servers as daily files in RINEX format (ASCII). The NGDC archive has automated daily routines that selectively pull in the daily observational files at the original sampling rate, the daily observational summary file, the daily broadcast ephemeris files, and any corresponding meteorological files. Each site has a metadata record retained as a site log file (ASCII).
