New Book Introduces Consequence Analysis Tool

Understanding potential economic consequences from natural, man-made, or technological threats is important for managing disaster risks.

A new book, Economic Consequence Analysis of Disasters, written by NSD's Sam Chatterjee (Applied Statistics & Computational Modeling group), with collaborators from the University of California and Cal State, provides insight and a software tool. E-CAT - the Economic Consequence Analysis Tool - is intended to help decision makers and analysts obtain estimates rapidly. The introduction of the tool advances the current state of the art in economic consequence analysis.
