 The Integrated risk for Venezuela is obtained from combining the social vulnerability and the risk average annual losses indexes. High integrated risk can be understood as those subnational areas experiencing high seismicity, high physical earthquake risk, and high levels of social vulnerability. The social vulnerability results (figure 3A) showed high levels of vulnerable population in the southern parishes, mostly rural parishes with limited access to basic services. Whereas, the integrated risk spatial distribution reveals high levels of risk in the northern parishes as it is where the physical risk is higher (figure 3B) as high risk seismicity zones are located in the north; it is also the location of most major urban economic centers e.g. Caracas, Maracaibo, Valencia; which are Venezuela’s economic hubs. In terms of social vulnerability,​ the spatial distribution of the integrated risk (figure 3C) reveals that parishes remain moderate to high as population livelihoods directly depend on the economy activity. Consequently,​ northern parishes being in high seismic risk zones and socially vulnerable, experience the most losses in terms of livelihoods of the population and economically in the event of an earthquake. \\  The Integrated risk for Venezuela is obtained from combining the social vulnerability and the risk average annual losses indexes.
