Sunday's suicide attack in Lahore has so far claimed at least 72 lives, making it the deadliest single attack the country has suffered in 2015 or 2016, according to data from the South Asia Terrorism Portal. Today's Viz of the Day provides a unique collection of visualizations to support a closer examination of the broader trends in terrorism-related violence in Pakistan.
The data below shows that total fatalities from terrorism-related events have declined steadily in Pakistan since 2009, a trend driven in large part by a lower number of terrorists/insurgent deaths and only more recently by reductions in civilian casualties. Total civilian casualties declined 47.2 percent from 2014 to 2015 and by 40.7 percent from 2013 to 2014.
Source note: The South Asia Terrorism Portal complies figures from news reports and these figures are provisional. Values represent total number of victims, including civilians, terrorists and security force personnel, unless otherwise stated.
