START has released a new research brief and an update to its Profiles of Individual Radicalization in the United States (PIRUS) dataset, which now includes information on 2,226 Islamist, far-left, far-right and single-issue extremists who have radicalized to violent and non-violent extremism in the United States from 1948 through 2018. The data is freely available on START's website and allows users to explore the radicalization trajectories of individuals from far-right, far-left and Islamist ideologies.
