SECURITY ECONOMICS: A GUIDE FOR DATA AVAILABILITY AND NEEDS
Defence and Peace Economics, 2011, vol. 22, issue 2, 147-159
The rapid and accelerating development of security economics has generated great demand for more and better data, to accommodate the empirical research agenda. The present paper serves as a guide to policy makers and researchers for security-related databases. The paper focuses on two main issues. First, it takes stock of the existing databases and highlights their main components. Second, it discusses data shortages and needs that are considered essential for enhancing our understanding of the complex phenomenon of terrorism, as well as designing and evaluating policy.
