Datasets for the G∀R 2015

65 datasets covering 82 countries and 3 states have been especially updated and customized for the G∀R 2015. These datasets contain a standardized subset of the records of the original datasets as produced by each country. The G∀R only uses records of disaster of geological or weather related origin. In addition, several tight criteria of quality has been imposed on these records in order to be analyzed. One of the highlights of G∀R 2015 analysis is the economic valuation of direct damage (variables "Economic loss (conservative)" and "Economic loss (with Agriculture)".
