Steps to reproduce

Some of the socioeconomic variables came from the raw data provided by the Philippine Statistics Authority. While some of the vulnerability variables were sourced from EM-DAT CRED and Global Forest Watch. The dataset contains raw data, to standardize the value of the variables, dimensional indices were calculated, and for the panel data analysis, the disaggregated variables that are not in percentage or ratio form were converted into their natural log value. The raw data were inputted in an excel file. Using the Microsoft excel software the dimensional indices were calculated. For the Panel Data Analysis. a statistical software was used to convert the raw data into its natural log form.
