Description

This report provides statistical information on military expenditures, arms transfers, armed forces, and related economic data for 172 countries from 1985-1995. Contains tables ranking countries by each variable in 1995.

Key military indicators reported in this 25th edition of World Military Expenditures and Arms Transfers (WMEAT) suggest that 1995, the last year shown, may prove to be a pivotal year. Military spending took an upward turn in the developing countries as a group as well as in a number of regions, notably East Asia and South America, after dropping since 1986 except for the Gulf War years. Arms imports by the developing countries also turned up sharply in 1995, with increases appearing in the Middle East, East Asia, South America, and South and Central Asia. Armed forces numbers did not generally increase in 1995, but neither have they shown recent signs of falling appreciably in the developing group. On the other hand, for the developed country group all these indicators of military effort continued their decline from Cold War levels in 1995, with little sign of abatement.
