IntelCenter, a Washington-based company working for intelligence agencies, Country Threat Index (CTI) examines the volume of terrorist and rebel alerts, messaging traffic, videos, photos, incidents and the number of people killed and injured in a country over the past month and runs it through an algorithm to assign the country its CTI.
The CTI is based solely on terrorist and rebel related activity. It does not evaluate other risk factors such as crime and political instability.
The Middle East topped the list as of March 2015, with Iraq and Syria ranking No 1 and 2 respectively, given the current political situation in the war-torn countries. The countries completing the top 10 include Nigeria (3rd), Somalia (4th), Afghanistan (5th), Libya (6th), Yemen (7th), Pakistan (8th), Ukraine (9th) and Egypt (10th).
As the Muslim immigrant populations in the West continue to grow, so will the danger quotient.
