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.
