Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)

The SIPRI database provides data on military expenditure for more than 160 countries. The SIPRI provides data for the period of 1949-2002 and contains three basic formats: military expenditure in local currency, at current prices; military expenditure in US dollars, at constant (2000) prices and exchange rates; and military expenditure as a share (%) of gross domestic product (GDP). The online database is available at http://projects.sipri.org/milex/mex_database1.html, but this database is missing data from before 1988. To acquire updated pre-1988 data, you need to use the contact us link on the linked database to request access. 

The sources for military expenditure data are, in order of priority: (a) primary sources, that is, official data provided by national governments, either in their official publications or in response to questionnaires; (b) secondary sources which quote primary data; and (c) other secondary sources. The second category includes international statistics, such as those of NATO and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The database is revised when new and better sources are available. Therefore, there is sometimes considerable variation between data sets for individual countries in different yearbooks.
