Chart by country or organization

Comparisons between figures in this table should be used with caution. See the notes below regarding the figures for the People's Republic of China. There are, however, other comparison issues inherent with these figures: for example, France includes in its defence expenditure the cost of maintaining the Gendarmerie, which is primarily used for what would be described in the United Kingdom, for example, as an internal police matter. Consequently, there is no corresponding expenditure made in the UK's defence budget. A gendarmerie or gendarmery (pronounced ) is a military body charged with police duties among civilian populations. ...
