Global Terrorism index (GTI)

The GTI is produced by the Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) based on data from the Global Terrorism Database (GTD). Data for the GTD is collected and collated by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) at the University of Maryland. The GTD contains over 170;000 terrorist incidents for the period 1970 to 2017.

You can explore the complexity of terrorism and its causes with interactive maps on our Vision of Humanity platform.
