Weather Event with Greatest Consequence on Population Health and Economy
This data analysis determines the type of severe weather event, across the United States, that (i) is the most harmful with respect to population health; and (ii) has the greatest economic consequence. For the former, we tabulate the fatalities and injuries caused by each weather event, to find out which weather event inflicts the most damage on population health. For the latter, we tabulate the cost of property and crop damage, to determine which weather event causes the greatest economic consequence. These findings will help prepare for severe weather events and prioritise resources for different types of events.
