emdatr: Global Disaster Losses from the EMDAT Database Using R

The 'EMDAT' database provides information on human and financial losses from more than 21,000 major natural global disasters from 1900 to the present. This package provides the entire data available from 'EMDAT' and also additional relevant information such as historical national GDP and population. Moreover, this package also provides functionality to extract desired subsets of the 'EMDAT' data. The examples provided in the vignette demonstrate the functionality provided by 'emdatr'. The goal of 'emdatr' is to promote the use of 'EMDAT' data, bring transparency to the data, shed light on the limitations of the data, and make the analysis of the data easier using R.
