This webinar released the results of the 2018 census of the social science hazards and disaster research community. The census is the first attempt to generate a comprehensive portrait of social science hazards and disaster researchers. The data collected includes each researchers’ disciplinary training, organizational affiliation, types of hazards and disasters they study, and their methodological expertise, among other information. This webinar featured a demo of the Social Science Extreme Events Research (SSEER) interactive map, which includes the names, organizational affiliations, and geographic locations of the 683 researchers who signed up for SSEER in 2018.
