How is defence expenditure evolving throughout NATO compared to economic output? How has the distribution of spending been changing over time?

NATO has just released the latest information on defence expenditures for all member countries.

The compendium of financial, personnel and economic data is published each December and since 1963 has formed a consistent basis of comparison of the defence effort of Alliance members based on a common definition of defence expenditure.

Since 2004, the NATO-Russia Compendium has included information on the Russian Federation.
