Australia AU: Military Expenditure

1960 - 2017 | Yearly | AUD mn | World Bank

Australia’s AU: Military Expenditure data was reported at 35,823.500 AUD mn in Jun 2017. This records an increase from the previous number of 35,495.000 AUD mn for Jun 2016. Australia’s AU: Military Expenditure data is updated yearly, averaging 7,718.500 AUD mn from Jun 1960 to 2017, with 58 observations. The data reached an all-time high of 35,823.500 AUD mn in 2017 and a record low of 410.500 AUD mn in 1960. Australia’s AU: Military Expenditure data remains active status in CEIC and is reported by World Bank. The data is categorized under Global Database’s Australia – Table AU.World Bank.WDI: Defense and Official Development Assistance. Military expenditures data from SIPRI are derived from the NATO definition, which includes all current and capital expenditures on the armed forces, including peacekeeping forces; defense ministries and other government agencies engaged in defense projects; paramilitary forces, if these are judged to be trained and equipped for military operations; and military space activities. Such expenditures include military and civil personnel, including retirement pensions of military personnel and social services for personnel; operation and maintenance; procurement; military research and development; and military aid (in the military expenditures of the donor country). Excluded are civil defense and current expenditures for previous military activities, such as for veterans' benefits, demobilization, conversion, and destruction of weapons. This definition cannot be applied for all countries, however, since that would require much more detailed information than is available about what is included in military budgets and off-budget military expenditure items. (For example, military budgets might or might not cover civil defense, reserves and auxiliary forces, police and paramilitary forces, dual-purpose forces such as military and civilian police, military grants in kind, pensions for military personnel, and social security contributions paid by one part of government to another.); ; Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Yearbook: Armaments, Disarmament and International Security.; ; Data for some countries are based on partial or uncertain data or rough estimates.
