The dataset includes information on these individuals' affiliations with terrorist/insurgent organizations, educational institutions, businesses, and religious institutions. It also outlines which individuals are classmates, kin, friends, and co-religionists, and it details which individuals provided logistical support or participated in training events, terrorist operations, and meetings.
