Description

The heat risk indicator calculates a metric for the risk to vulnerable citizens due to heat stress.  It correlates CBS statistical data on residents over 65 years old, the heat stress overlay and the amount of recently built houses. In this indicator it is assumed that modern houses have better isolation and therefore retain more heat. This indicator is useful for projects in which (for example):

  • heat stress and the effect on citizens is measured
  • livability plays an important part

For more information on this indicator and the calculations behind it, please see the manual.
