The disaster timeline represents the number of severe weather events over time. Data is sourced from the Bureau of Meteorology and Australian Emergency Management Institute. Read more about our database: http://hardenup.org/be-aware/weather-events/about-the-harden-up-events-database.aspx

Population data is supplied by Queensland Government’s Office of Economic and Statistical Research (OESR). Why is this important? Population growth means an increase in the number of people affected and damage caused by an event, as well as an increase in pressures on emergency services. Please note, dramatic changes in population data, such as a sudden decrease can mean that the area was rezoned and renamed.
