Since September 11, 2001, U.S. counter-terrorism policy has focused largely on the worldwide threat posed by Islamist extremism to America.

The purpose of the report is to provide empirical data as the foundation of reasoned discussion and principled debate. The metrics are designed to be both reproducible and objective.
