Lloyd’s City Risk Index: North America

Lloyd’s City Risk Index 2018: North America

 

The Lloyd’s City Risk Index measures the GDP@Risk of 279 cities across the world from 22 threats in five categories: finance, economics and trade; geopolitics and security; health and humanity; natural catastrophe and climate and technology and space. The index shows how much economic output (GDP) a city would lose annually as a consequence of various types of rare risk events that might only take place once every few years, such as an earthquake, or from more frequently occurring events such as cyber attacks. The top 10 US cities included are: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Washington, Dallas, Boston, and Seattle.
