A Heat Vulnerability Index was built with Open Data for Metropolitan Sydney, for the years 2011 and 2016. Vulnerability is defined as the propensity of a population to be adversely affected by extreme heat and depends on 3 components: the exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity of the population. These 3 sub-indexes were calculated with various indicators that you can find as attributes to this layer. The scale of the study is the Statistical Areas 2 (SA2) of the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
