The psychological effect of terrorism that is easiest to quantify is the prevalence of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a potentially socially crippling psychological disorder. One of the major symptoms of PTSD is avoiding people or situations that remind one of the traumatic experience. PTSD can change the way people behave at home and at work; hence neither the private nor public sphere is immune from the harm caused by terror attacks. In the middle of the second Intifada, percent of Israelis suffered from PTSD. But the occurrence of PTSD varied considerably between men, women, and children, with 40 percent of Israeli children suffering from this disorder. Women are also more likely to have PTSD than men, and also have a significantly higher chance of having TSRs and depression. Hence, the psychological effects of terrorism are by no means uniform. Different people are affected to different degrees.
