Where is the riskiest place to live?

Vanuatu is the riskiest country to live in, with natural disasters on average affecting more than a third of the population each year, according to the World Risk Report 2015.

Countries are ranked using the world risk index, which takes into account not only the frequency of natural disasters in each country (known as exposure) but also how well equipped the country is to cope with and recover from the effects of a disaster.

The index takes into account many factors, analysing data on public infrastructure, housing quality, medical services, education level and more.
