Changes in U.S. Earthquake Risk: Data Layers for Use in Touchstone
In July of this year, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) published a comprehensive update to the United States National Seismic Hazard Maps, which were last updated in 2008. These maps reflect the latest research on seismicity and ground motion across the United States and may result in material changes in the estimation of portfolio risk.
Companies can analyze the updates to expected ground motion to derive broad brush insights into the possible directional changes of model results. To that end, AIR is providing three data layers that can be analyzed in the Geospatial Analytics Module of Touchstone®. Download AIR's Issue Brief below to learn more about what the data layers represent, how they can be used in Touchstone, and how to interpret analysis results.
