Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
In order to analyse the causes and circumstances of the fatalities due to hurricane Harvey (2017), a database of reported fatalities was compiled. Information about the victim (age, gender) and the circumstances of death (location, date, cause and circumstances of death) were included. The database is limited to fatalities that occurred within the first two weeks after landfall in Texas (August 25 - September 8, 2017) and that were directly relatable to hurricane Harvey. The dataset was compiled using both official government sources and media sources.
