PREFACE



This edition of WMEAT (pronounced "we-meet"), the twenty-fourth in the series issued by the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, is intended to serve as a convenient reference on military expenditures, arms transfers, armed forces, and related economic data for 172 countries over the 1984-1994 decade. We have continued our efforts to provide comprehensive, up-to-date, and accurate data, accompanied by pertinent analyses and highlights.

Features in this edition include a set of tables ranking the countries of the world by each variable in 1994 and an essay on recent developments in U.S. arms export control policy.

Future editions are now available through the Standing Order Service of the Superintendent of Documents. Copies of this report may be obtained by placing an order with the Superintendent of Documents (telephone no. 202 512-1800).
