This paper presents a homogeneous and complete database of defence spending for 14 NATO members in the period 1960-2007. Working with the SIPRI Yearbooks, the database unifies separate series with the aim of providing an instrument for the long-run analysis of defence economics. The paper shows how the series have been linked and offers a brief statistical analysis of the main properties of the series in terms of the stability of defence spending growth in the last 50 years.

Keywords: Defence spending, database military expenditure, times series analysis
