Abstract: 

The Profiles of Incidents involving CBRN and Non-state Actors (POICN) database is an open-source relational database recording ideologically motivated CBRN incidents including attacks, failed agent-use attempts, plots and proto-plots. The dataset is currently comprised of 517 events covering the period 1990 to 2016. Each event collects more than 140 geospatial, temporal, motivational, operational, tactical, and consequence variables. To gain access to the database, email the project team at poicn@umd.edu.
