Abstract

This paper investigates the group structure in a terrorist network through the latent class model and a Bayesian model comparison method for the number of latent classes. The analysis of the terrorist network is sensitive to the model specification. Under one model it clearly identifies a group containing the leaders and organisers, and the group structure suggests a hierarchy of leaders, trainers and “footsoldiers” who carry out the attacks.
