A risk model for termite attack in Australia

IRG/WP 03-10468

R H Leicester, C-H Wang, L J Cookson

This paper describes a model to predict the risk of termite attack on a house in Australia. It is based on a survey of expert opinion and data from 5000 houses. The model gives a quantitative estimate of risk, and as such is useful for the development of risk management systems. An example of the application of such a system is given.
