The dataset of risk assessment of tropical cyclone on the Northwest Pacific (1980-2022) was developed based on the Northwest Pacific Best Tropical Cyclone Track Dataset and the kernel density approach to examine the impact degree and risk level of tropical cyclones in the Northwest Pacific Ocean between 99°E and 160°E, 2°N and 52°N. The total number of tropical cyclones that occurred in China's land areas from 1980 to 2022 was counted. The data shows that: (1) the South China Sea and the Philippine Sea have the highest risk level and are most severely impacted by tropical storms in the northwest Pacific Ocean; (2) the law of gradually decreasing tropical cyclone cumulative infestation from coastal to interior locations applies to China's land area; Hainan Province experienced the highest number of tropical cyclones, followed by Taiwan Province and Leizhou Peninsula in Guangdong Province. The dataset includes: (1) the risk level of tropical cyclone disasters in the northwest Pacific Ocean; (2) the cumulative number of tropical cyclones in China land area; (3) the tropical cyclone statistics for the Northwest Pacific. The dataset is archived in .tif and .xls formats, consisting of 3 data files with data size of 1.15 MB (Compressed into one file with 224 KB).
