Commuters Remain Stoical in Face of Terrorist Attacks

This brief article reports on a study that investigated how Londoners are coping after the terrorist attacks of July 7, 2005. In a survey of 1,010 Londoners, 31% reported symptoms of substantial stress, but this number is somewhat lower than has been found in other countries following terrorist attacks. For example, after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, 44% of the people surveyed in New York and Washington reported feeling substantial stress. The author notes that Londoners may have fared better because they have a history of dealing with terrorism. Readers are referred to the full article that appear in the British Medical Journal (G.J. Rubin et al, 2005).
