For this assignment from my Reproducible Research class at Coursera, I completed a brief analysis of the negative impacts storm events have historically had on US population, property, and crops.
We were given the following National Weather Service data.
The audience for this assignment was my fellow classmates. As we were expected to read the provided documentation, it was assumed that we knew the following.
EVTYPE: stands for the storm event type, i.e. hurricane/typhoon or tornado
FATALITIES: represents the number of people killed during a storm event
INJURIES: represents the number of people injured during a storm event
PROPDMG: represents the property damage in US dollars caused by a storm event
PROPDMGEXP: represents the exponent affiliated with the property damage. For example, if
PROPDMG= 5 and
PROPDMGEXP= K, then the total property damage is $5000
CROPDMG: represents the crop damage in US dollars caused by a storm event
CROPDMGEXP: same as
PROPDMGEXPbut for crops
