abstract The NSW Heat Vulnerability Index (HVI) dataset identifies areas to monitor where | populations in the Sydney Greater Metropolitan Area are more vulnerable to the | adverse effects of urban heat, as of Summer 2015-2016. HVI utilises indicators for | exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity to calculate an overall heat vulnerability | index. Expressed through the data, a vulnerability of 1 represents a combination of low | exposure, low sensitivity and/or high adaptive capacity. A vulnerability of 5 represents | high exposure, high sensitivity and/or low adaptive capacity. The calculation of HVI and | the inputs to the exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity indicators are explained in | the metadata. The HVI data is aggregated to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) | Statistical Area Level 1 (SA1) polygon dataset to enable spatial analysis to support local | policy and decision making. It can be used in conjunction with the NSW urban | vegetation cover dataset for the same time period for broader analysis of the | relationship of heat to green cover. | Available from https://datasets.seed.nsw.gov.au/dataset/nsw-heat-vulnerability-index-to-abs-statistical-area-level-1-2016
