Global Terrorism: What is Happening to Our World?
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Steavi Swinson
Here we serve to analyze global terrorism, events that occurred within the United States between 1985-2016, specifically, a comparison of terrorist events before 9/11 and after 9/11. These data are analyzed along with weapons types, terrorist organizations responsible, target types, and temporal analysis. The main analysis performed is kernel density and pivot tables. Results show a decrease in terrorism, but an increase in awareness.
