Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains two files of world military expenditures and arms trade data for the period 1964-1973. Part 1 is an extension of WORLD MILITARY EXPENDITURES TIME SERIES, 1961-1970 (ICPSR 5031), for the period 1963-1973. In this file, data are provided for military expenditures, gross national product (GNP), arms trade, population, and the armed forces size. Data on arms imports and arms exports are given in both current and constant dollars. Part 2 provides information for 136 countries on the total current dollar value of arms imported between 1964 and 1973. It includes a breakdown of the total value by each of the nine largest nations supplying arms -- United States, United Kingdom, France, China, Canada, Poland, and the former Soviet Union, West Germany, and Czechoslovakia. Data are provided for the recipient countries by major suppliers, as well as for the cumulative total value of arms imported between 1964 and 1973.
