Abstract:Unscheduled events may have sudden and significant impacts on the economy of a region. The damage to the production facilities and lifelines may spread across boundaries of regions or even countries via inter-industry relationships and can have serious economic impacts on other regions. The estimation of the damage of a disaster plays a role in risk assessment and it is necessary that all damage is included to provide a complete analysis of the consequences of a disaster. The report gives an overview of existing loss estimation models and presents a method to estimate the economic loss of a temporary disruption of the infrastructure.
