Then in chapter 2, these indices are used to analyze any local level redistributional effects. Chapter 3 is a historical paper looking at fertility rates following hurricanes in the early 1900s. Finally, chapter 4 uses nightlights and earthquake data to assess global economic impact of earthquakes.
