  • Perspectives on terrorism
  • Absolute population size has been proposed as one factor that encourages terrorism since large states have moredifficulty maintaining security. More populous states suffer from more terrorism because they have more people,but the relationship disappears when per capita measures of terrorism are used. There are some indications thatsmaller states are more secure, but the evidence is not consistently present.
