They are presented in millions of United States dollars in current prices, converted at the exchange rate for the given year.[1] If there is no data for a particular year, a cell is left blank. Although the database includes statistics for over 150 countries, per SIPRI's Terms and Condition permission is needed to directly reproduce more than 10% of the database.
