The Terrorism and Preparedness Data Resource Center (TPDRC) is housed at the University of Michigan's Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR). TPDRC archives and distributes data collected by government agencies, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and researchers about:

  • The nature of intra- (domestic) and international terrorism incidents, organizations, perpetrators, and victims

  • Governmental and nongovernmental responses to terror, including primary, secondary, and tertiary interventions

  • Citizen's attitudes towards terrorism, terror incidents, and the response to terrorism

It also organizes and streamlines access to extant research and administrative data from across the world that are relevant to the study of terrorism and the response to terrorism for descriptive and scientific analysis by academics and researchers.

The TPDRC also includes the Terrorism and Preparedness Survey Archive (TaPSA). As part of TPDRC, TaPSA archives national and international survey data and related research materials about terrorism, homeland security, and preparedness.
