Comparative Indicators of Hazards Vulnerability in Urban Areas


This project provides the context for assessing the relative vulnerability of the nation's urban areas. Based on the ongoing infrastructure mapping of the nation's top 133 cities, this project is developing hazard, social, and built environment indicators to see how well they capture and differentiate metropolitan areas based on the vulnerability of the physical, social, and built environments.
