Global Risk Layer (Detailed)

Overview

The impacts of ground shaking in the built environment in countries and regions included in this release are captured by the risk model’s exposed population and assets and associated vulnerability functions. The exposure database contains population, dwelling and building counts, structural characteristics, and replacement values at the Administrative Level 1 for all the countries covered by the global model. The vulnerability model database comprises vulnerability and damage curves for over 600 building types globally for residential, commercial and residential buildings. Losses are calculated for earthquake scenarios or probabilistically in terms of annualized loss or loss exceedance curves.
