Abstract

The purpose of the paper is to present the occurrence and fatalities of the technological and complex environmental hazards and draw an initial picture of concentration if there is any. For that reason, aggregate regional tables are used as well as map visualizations created in R- studio. As it is shown, there appears to be a space concentration on the natural environmental hazards that need to be deeply examined with the use of advanced econometric techniques.
