The Public Perception of Terrorist Activity Measured Against Database Evidence

Year: 2023

Presenter Name: Chandler Robinson

Data shows that Americans are fearful of a variety of different crimes; some more than others. Understandably, Americans are particularly fearful of the idea that a terrorist attack may effect their lives in some way. As destructive as these events have the potential to be, they are uncommon in comparison to fear index data. This study seeks to understand how demographics and media consumption determines an individual's perception of terrorist groups and organizations. Keywords: Terrorism, Media, Crime
