Disaster Risk and FNMA Multifamily Loans
I have recently decided that I need to incorporate a spatial element to my presentations. There are many reasons for this, but the main reason is that presenting data in a map helps bring the analyst to a much deeper understanding of the risks involved. For FNMA multifamily loans, there is a heavy exposure to the southwest. This means that there is a heavy exposure to disaster risks including fires and earthquakes. There is also a large exposure on the east coast of Texas, an area prone to epochal flooding.
The package I use is from The Urban Institute. The data is from Fannie Mae.
