Number of deaths, missing persons and directly affected persons attributed to disasters per 100,000 population


Disaster means serious disruption of the functioning of a community or society involving widespread human, material, economic or environmental losses and impacts that exceed the affected community or society’s ability to cope with the disaster without outside assistance. Denmark does not compile statistics in this area using this definition. However, Statistics Denmark estimates that dead or missing persons due to disasters never or hardly ever occur. Denmark does not compile continuous and official statistics on the number of persons affected by disasters.
