Reference: Suicide Attack Database (From U. of Chicago Project on Security and Terrorism)

From the Database Info Page:

The Chicago Project on Security and Terrorism (CPOST) maintains a searchable database on all suicide attacks from 1982 through June 2015. The database includes information about the location of attacks, the target type, the weapon used, and systematic information on the demographic and general biographical characteristics of suicide attackers. The database expands the breadth of the data available in English using native language sources (e.g., Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, Tamil) that are likely to have the most extensive relevant information.

The current CPOST-SAD [Suicide Attack Database] release contains the universe of suicide attacks from 1982 through June 2015, a total of 4,620 attacks in over 40 countries.
