CHICAGO -- A study by the Chicago Project on Security and Threats (CPOST) found that ISIS is mobilizing sympathizers in the United States at rates much higher than any other terrorist group.

The study was unveiled in Chicago on Friday morning.

The authors say this is the first comprehensive analysis of ISIS-related cases to examine the profiles of inductees overall, as well as to identify characteristics associated with each of the offense types.
