Global Terrorism Index
The Global Terrorism Index (GTI) is the first index to systematically rank and compare 158 countries according to the impact of terrorism.
The GTI uses four indicators to measure the impact of terrorism: the number of terrorist incidents, the number of deaths, the number of casualties and the level of property damage. These indicators are used to create a weighted five year average for each country, which takes into account the lasting effects of terrorism.
The score given to each country therefore indicates the impact of a terrorist attack on a society in terms of the fear and subsequent security response.
