Borden, K.A., and Cutter, S.L. (2008). Spatial Patterns of Natural Hazards Mortality in the United States. International Journal of Health Geographics. 17(7):64.
The authors examine the spatial patterns of natural hazard mortality at the county-level for the U.S. from 1970–2004 using a combination of geographical and epidemiological methods. This information can help to better inform local emergency practitioners who plan for and respond to disasters in their communities.
