Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)

The SIPRI database provides data on military expenditure for more than 160 countries. The SIPRI Yearbook 2003 provides data for the 10-year period 1993-2002 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.

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.
