abstract
Through the perspective of the 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, I examine the factors that decrease earthquake death tolls. I find that each additional dollar of aid per capita received by a nation two years prior to a quake causes a 2.36 percent decline in fatalities from the event; investment in infrastructure has ambiguous results. Furthermore, I conclude that the death toll of the Haitian quake was atypically high when compared to earthquakes of similar magnitude.
