    • Global Terrorism Database (GTD)

    • The Global Terrorism Database (GTD) is an open-source database including information on terrorist events (including more than 52,000 bombings, 14,400 assassinations, and 5,600 kidnappings) around the world from 1970 through 2012 (with additional annual updates planned for the future). Unlike many other event databases, the GTD includes systematic data on domestic as well as transnational and international terrorist incidents that have occurred during this time period and now includes more than 113,000 cases. For each GTD incident, information is available on the date and location of the incident, the weapons used and nature of the target, the number of casualties, and--when identifiable--the group or individual responsible. The National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) makes the GTD available via this online interface.
