List of countries by Global Militarization Index

Mapped results by country, where dark shades show a higher GMI

This list of countries by Global Militarization Index is based on the 2017[1] Global Militarization Index of the Bonn International Center for Conversion.

Global Militarization IndexEdit

The Global Militarization Index (GMI) depicts the relative weight and importance of the military apparatus of one state in relation to its society as a whole. For this, the GMI uses a number of indicators to represent the degree of militarization of a country:[2]

  • Military Expenditure Index Score: comparison of military expenditure with its gross domestic product (GDP) and its health expenditure (as share of its GDP);
  • People Index Score: contrast between the total number of (para)military forces with the number of physicians, and the overall population;
  • Heavy Weapons Index Score: ratio of the number of heavy weapons available and the overall population.
