Building a Global Terrorism Database
Gary LaFree (au); Laura Dugan; Heather V. Fogg; Jeffrey Scott
Report of a project to code and verify a previously unavailable data set composed of 67,165 terrorist events recorded for the entire world from 1970 to 1997. This unique database was originally collected by the PGIS Corporationís Global Intelligence Service (PGIS). The PGIS database was designed to document every known terrorist event across countries and time and allows the examination of the total number of different types of terrorist events by specific date and geographical region. To the best of the authorsí knowledge this is the most comprehensive open source data set on terrorism that has ever been available to researchers (as of 2006). PGIS trained their employees to identify and code terrorism incidents from a variety of sources, including wire services (especially Reuters and the Foreign Broadcast Information Service), U.S. State Dept. reports, other U.S. and foreign government reports, U.S. and foreign newspapers, information provided by PGIS offices around the world, occasional inputs from such special interests as organized political opposition groups, and data furnished by PGIS clients and other individuals in both official and private capacities.
