Fear of terrorist attacks in Great Britain 2015

This 2015 statistic shows how worried British respondents are about a terrorist attack happening in Britain. The largest share of respondents reported feeling quite worried, with over 40 percent, while 4 percent reported feeling not worried at all. Yet, despite the fact that 78 percent of respondents confessed to worrying about terrorism, this anxiety is irrational as the total resident population in the UK is exceedingly greater than the number of fatalities resulting terrorist attacks in recent years or the number of injuries resulting from terrorist attacks in the UK. Yet despite this fact the perceived threat of a terrorist attack remains high.

At the present time how worried, if at all, are you personally about a terrorist attack happening in Britain?
