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 continuous and official statistics on the number of dead, missing and affected persons in connection with disasters. However, Statistics Denmark estimates that very few people  die or go missing due to disasters.
