Several methods were employed to measure the impact of flood disaster on the mining sector GDP growth such as the Auto-regressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) bounds testing approach, the Error Correction Model (ECM) test, the cumulative sum (CUSUM) and cumulative sum of squares (CUSUMsq) tests. The findings suggest that flood negatively affect mining GDP growth in both short run and long run.
