The SHELDUS database is database on human and property losses from natural disasters in the United States. Although the data is free, downloading the data is tedious and so is cleaning and analyzing it. The new R package sheldusr comes with the cleaned and pre-processed SHELDUS data and includes functionality to retrieve data for any desired time period or natural hazard(s) of interest.

The home page for the package presents some examples and graphics. Please see – https://github.com/RationShop/sheldusr

Below are the relevant CRAN and GitHub sites:

This is my first package and I think it could be improved in several ways. I hope to make these improvements in the coming months. In the meantime, please let me know if you find any errors or if you have any comments or suggestions.
