[OQSPS] Explaining Terrorism Threat Level Across Western Countries

#28
1. I think that the Conclusion is correct that, of the three measures of Islamist terrorism, the casualties per capita measure is the most valid. As the manuscript mentions, analyses with the measure of terror threat level can be "somewhat tautological" (p. 4) if percentage Muslim informs the terror level; the third measure can also be biased if arrests are influenced by percentage Muslim. If the casualties per capita measure is the most valid, it might be best to discuss that measure first.

2. The number of casualties per capita is an important measure to predict for assessing "the risk of Islamist terrorism" (p. 3), but it might be worth also predicting the number of attacks as a different measure of risk.

3. I'm not sure why the interpolated 2015 estimate for percentage Muslim is used, for at least some models. For example, casualties sum across years from 2001 to 2016, so the 2010 estimate closer to the middle of the time period would appear to be a better predictor than the interpolated 2015 estimate that is near the end of the time period.

4. Page 7 of the manuscript indicates that there are four of 26 EU countries identified as part of the anti-ISIS military coalition, but the Excel file indicates five ("part" variable: Belgium, Denmark, France, Netherlands, and the UK) of 28 EU countries ("eu" variable).

5. Suggested edits:

* page 9 "of any military deaths in in Iraq" [double "in"]

* page 8: "it was significant (p = 0.896)" [not significant?]

* page 10 "it was significant (p = 0.230)" [not significant?]

* page 12 "it was significant (p = 0.343)" [not significant?]
