How to use distance to coast data to inform your coastal risk
At a glance:
Coastal counties in the U.S. are
home to over 126 million people, or 40 percent of the total U.S. population
, with an estimated $36.4 trillion in exposure across 18 states.
2.4 billion people live within 60 miles of the coast.
And, about 10 percent of the world’s population live in coastal areas that are less than 10 meters above sea level.
If you’re writing or managing coastal risk, it’s imperative that you couple coastline data with coastal related risks.
