Poland[edit]

31,5 bln USD would be like 10% of Polish GDP. In "Polish Armed Forces" article it's 9,65 bln and this is a good number


Poland budget 2009 is 24,5 bln zloty and is 6,9 bln dollar -currency online 5/4/2009 so 12 bln is fabricated

Australia %[edit]

IISS stated % age of gdp surely not correct? 81.170.30.157 (talk) 09:19, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

the wrong map of russia

where is crimea? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.140.208.77 (talk) 11:18, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

In Ukraine, where it should be. Sharkb (talk) 00:25, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Purchasing Power Parity[edit]

i feel a new column could be included with the expenditure amounts listed by ppp. The amount of goods and services obtained for a set amount of USD by another country will be different to that obtained for the same amount by the united states. Although the figures quoted here are based on the global reserve (USD) the actual expenditures themselves are mostly in the respective national currencies, (except in the case of international purchases) and so i feel that having another column to sort the values by PPP would add value to the article as it would paint a better picture of the actual value of military expenditure. This issue has been touched upon before but has not had any dedicated thought put into it. i invite feedback and comments. thanks Pvpoodle (talk) 13:35, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, we can include PPP without doubt...but do you have a source? ƬheStrikeΣagle 13:58, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
my idea was to simply use the sources from List of countries by GDP (PPP), namely the IMF & World Bank. Pvpoodle (talk) 15:55, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
No No we dont convert the figures to PPP ourselves...there are PPP converted figures of SIPRI and probably IISS but I don't have them with me.. @Antiochus the Great do you have them? ƬheStrikeΣagle 16:10, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
since the figures here are expressed as % of GDP, and since the IMF / World bank figures are GDP (PPP), it should be a fairly straightforward conversion. i dont think it is OR since both are published figures and we are just collating them. if this is not acceptable we could look for published data. Pvpoodle (talk) 16:19, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I fear that would be OR....we need published data for adding the table.. ƬheStrikeΣagle 16:37, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

SIPRI terms and conditions[edit]

I just noticed that permission is required if more than 10% of SIPRIs data set is reproduced. Otherwise we are breaking copyright and reproduction laws. Only 10% of their data set can be reproduced under 'fair use'. This means that the "SIPRI military expenditure database (2012)" table will have to be trimmed down to 10%.

Any thoughts? Antiochus the Great (talk) 12:05, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

I am going to go ahead and trim the data set down to 10%. Antiochus the Great (talk) 15:20, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
What about trying to get their permission then? Can an Email be sent asking to publish at least last year's figures? They may allow Wikipedia, I think it's worth a try. --Hibernian (talk) 13:33, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Is that why the page has been utterly gutted? This is totally unacceptable, are there no other sources available for this? Having the budgets of only the top 15 countries available on Wikipedia is a joke. 192.160.165.63 (talk) 23:57, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
There is this... https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/2034rank.html It only shows % of GDP though. 2602:306:8032:50E0:64ED:29E7:D6E5:7772 (talk) 20:17, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
