Earthquake disaster risk refers to the risk expectations caused by destructive earthquakes (Ms 4.7) in life property and economic activity. After collecting the seismogeology and historical earthquake data of Liaodong Peninsula, this study comprehensively assesses the earthquake disaster risk of the peninsula using GIS spatial analysis technology and physio-mathematical statistics method from views of seismic hazard and hazard affected body s vulnerability and five indicators of earthquake intensity, earthquake frequency, population, economic exposure, and fault sensitivity. The results show that, the high risk region of earthquake disaster in Liaodong Peninsula mainly concentrates in the three areas of Haicheng-Dashiqiao, Dandong-Donggang and Pulandian-Jinzhou.
