The United Nations Report on Military Expenditures remains an important source for official data on military expenditure.1 The reporting mechanism, which was introduced in 1981, is managed by the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA). Each year the UN Secretary-General invites all member states through a note verbale to report their military expenditure by 30 April for the most recent financial year for which data is available. The original basis for this request is a UN General Assembly resolution adopted in 1980.2 Successive biennial General Assembly resolutions have called for the continued reporting of military expenditure by member states.3
