* Total Worldwide Arms Transfer Agreements Values, 2001-2008
Table 30 shows the annual current dollar values of arms transfer agreements worldwide. Since these figures do not allow for the effects of inflation, they are, by themselves, of limited use. They provide, however, the data from which Table 31 (constant dollars) and Table 32 (supplier percentages) are derived.
* Total Worldwide Delivery Values 2001-2008
Table 35 shows the annual current dollar values of arms deliveries (items actually transferred) worldwide by major suppliers from 2001-2008. The utility of these data is that they reflect transfers that have occurred. They provide the data from which Table 36 (constant dollars) and Table 37 (supplier percentages) are derived.
