Over the past decade, there has been a general decline in the annual reporting by United Nations member states of their military spending through the use of the UN Standardized Instrument for Reporting Military Expenditures.1 At the same time, an increasing number of countries have posted information about their military expenditure online, albeit not according to the UN definition or the format of the UN Standardized Instrument. Indeed, of the 79 countries that made no response to the instrument between 2002 and 2008, 61 made at least basic information on their defence budget available online, and 16 of those gave a detailed breakdown of the budget.2
