The first annual Global Terrorism Index (GTI) will be released by the Institute for Economics and Peace at the New America Foundation in Washington, DC on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 from 3:00pm to 4:30pm (EST).
If you would like to attend this free event, please register here.
The GTI tracks changing trends in terrorism over time, as well as analyzing its different dimensions in terms of geographic activity, methods of attack, organizations involved and its national context. The index explores significant correlations with other socio-economic indicators such as economic development, human rights, social cohesion, and governance.
The GTI scores 158 countries from 2001 to 2011. Produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace, the GTI is based on data from the Global Terrorism Database (GTD), which is collected and collated by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START), headquartered at the University of Maryland.
