Interesting observations about Terrorism > Global Terrorism Indicator

These statistics does not do justice to the concept. The number of deaths will definitely have a strong correlation to the population of the country. Consequently even the low violence countries with higher populations will shoot up. Case inpoint is India. India is probably a lot safer than many countries in the African and West Asian countries.

A better way would be to use a ratio of the number of deaths per thousand population. This would help eliminate the above bias and will give a clearer picture of the spectre of terrorism.
