In 2016 the SIPRI military expenditure project fulfilled a long-held ambition by publishing an expanded military expenditure data set, going back in some cases as far as 1949.1 Due to both limited transparency in military expenditure in many countries and resource limitations in the backdating exercise, which essentially restricted the data collection to materials in the SIPRI library and archives, a complete data series extending back to 1949 (or a country’s independence) was not usually available. Nonetheless, substantial extensions of the data were possible in most cases. Data in constant United States dollars was extended back to at least 1957 for half of the countries that were independent at that time.
