Earthquake | Mitigation Saves Infographic

U.S. Map depicting BCR of earthquake mitigation by increasing strength and stiffness in new buildings (by county). Higher BCR is concentrated in western United States, with highest BCR concentration in southwestern United States.

Designing for disaster resilience in this study can be achieved by making new buildings stronger and stiffer than the code requires.
