Databases of activity measures

As part of the statistical analyses which took place in WISE, there was analysis of activity measures which were selected to be: (a) weather sensitive, (b) common to the four countries involved in WISE.
Because of this selection procedure, weather-related impacts on these activity measures could be compared between countries. Common activity measures were identified in the following sectors: outdoor fires, agriculture, the all-cause monthly death rate, energy consumption and tourism.
As part of the project, the WISE participants carefully documented: (a) Activity measures which had been identified but rejected for use in the project either because they were not easily available in all four countries or because of differences in the methods of data collection recording. These measures were originally for a much wider selection of activities than the final five named above, including for example statistics on water supply for some countries. (b) Activity measures which had been identified and accepted for analysis.
