U.S. Attitudes toward Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Reporting Terrorism-related Activity

Abstract: 

This research highlight examines results from a survey of 1,392 American adults conducted in January and February of 2014, and specifically focuses on responses to questions regarding reporting terrorism-related activity to law enforcement. When possible, it also compares findings to an earlier wave of the same survey conducted in the spring of 2013 before the Boston Marathon bombings. http://www.start.umd.edu/pubs/START_USAttitudes_ReportingTerrorismRelatedActivity.pdf
