Abstract
This article presents a methodology which evaluates the seismic risk from a holistic perspective, that is, it takes into account the expected physical damage and also the conditions related to social fragility and lack of resilience, which favour the second order effects when a hazard event strikes an urban centre. Indicators or indices could be used to measure seismic risk from a comprehensive and multidisciplinary perspective. They capture favourable conditions for direct physical impacts (exp...
