United States of Emergency

Each bar in the chart represents a National Emergency. Click on a bar to learn more about a specific National Emergency and read the actual proclamation that enacted it.

A National Emergency is declared on average every {{ Math.round(averageTimeBetweenDeclarations / 365) }} years, and lasts an average of {{ Math.round(averageEmergencyLength / 1000 / 60 / 60 / 24 / 365) }} years.

Of the {{ emergencies.length }} enacted National Emergencies, currently {{ emergenciesInEffect.length }} are in effect, broken down into the following categories:

  • {{ name }}: {{ item.length }}

On average, a President will enact {{ digitsToText(Math.round(averageNumberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor)) }} National Emergencies. {{ numberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor[numberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor.length - 1].name }} has enacted the most National Emergencies ({{ numberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor[numberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor.length - 1].emergencies.length }}), while {{ numberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor[0].name }} enacted the least National Emergencies ({{ numberOfEmergenciesEnactedPerExecutor[0].emergencies.length }}).

{{ numberOfActiveEmergenciesByExectutor[numberOfActiveEmergenciesByExectutor.length - 1].name }} has the enacted the most National Emergencies that are still in-effect ({{ numberOfActiveEmergenciesByExectutor[numberOfActiveEmergenciesByExectutor.length - 1].emergencies.length }}), while {{ numberOfActiveEmergenciesByExectutor[0].name }} has the least amount of in-effect National Emergencies ({{ numberOfActiveEmergenciesByExectutor[0].emergencies.length }}).

On average, a President will peform an extension of a National Emergency {{ Math.round(averageNumberOfExtendsPerExectutor) }} times during their tenure in office, with {{ numberOfExtendsPerExectutor[numberOfExtendsPerExectutor.length - 1].name }} performing the most extensions ({{ numberOfExtendsPerExectutor[numberOfExtendsPerExectutor.length - 1].extends }}) and {{ numberOfExtendsPerExectutor[0].name }} performing the least extensions ({{ numberOfExtendsPerExectutor[0].extends }}).

On average, a President will end {{ digitsToText(Math.round(averageNumberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor)) }} National Emergencies during their tenure in office, with {{ numberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor[numberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor.length - 1].name }} ending the most National Emergencies ({{ numberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor[numberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor.length - 1].ends }}) and {{ numberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor[0].name }} ending the least amount of National Emergencies ({{ numberOfEndedEmergenciesPerExecutor[0].ends }}).

The longeset currently in-effect National Emergency was enacted in {{ oldestActiveEmergency.proclamation }}: {{ oldestActiveEmergency.name }}, by {{ oldestActiveEmergency.executor.name }}, on {{ new Date(new Date(oldestActiveEmergency.startDate).getTime() + new Date(oldestActiveEmergency.startDate).getTimezoneOffset() * 60 * 1000).toLocaleDateString()}}. It has been in effect for {{ getTimespanString(new Date(oldestActiveEmergency.startDate), new Date()) }}.
