The United States is far from the most terrorized country, according to a recent study.
Released Tuesday, the study -- called the Global Terrorism Index and conducted by the Institute for Economics and Peace -- measures the impact of terrorism by country.
The institute compares the number of incidents, fatalities, injuries, and properties affected by terrorism to come up with the index for each country.
Out of 158 countries, the U.S. ranked 41 in 2011, the most recent data available.
A total of eight incidents, two injuries and two properties were affected. No American deaths were reported in 2011.
North America was actually the safest region in the world from 2002 to 2011, according to the report.
Iraq lead the study as the most terrorized country, recording 1,228 incidents and nearly 1,800 deaths. Pakistan and Afghanistan followed.
