Search the Suicide Attack Database

The Chicago Project on Security and Terrorism maintains a searchable database on all suicide attacks from 1981 to and additional years will be added. The database includes information about the location of attacks, the target type, the weapon used, and systematic information on the demographic and general biographical characteristics of suicide attackers. The database expands the breadth of the data available in English using native language sources (e.g., Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, Tamil) that are likely to have the most extensive relevant information.
