Short summary
We study temporal and geographical variations in the occurrence of 1466 rainfall-induced landslides in Calabria, southern Italy, in the period 1921–2010. To evaluate the impact on the population, we compare the number of rainfall-induced landslides with the size of population in the 409 municipalities in Calabria. We find variations in yearly and geographical distribution of rainfall-induced landslides, variations in rainfall triggering conditions, and changes in the impact on the population.
