* Major exporters are those countries that export - or are believed to export - at least USD 10 million worth of small arms, light weapons, their parts, accessories, or ammunition in a given calendar year.

The 2008 Barometer includes all countries that were among the major exporters at least once in their reporting covering the years 2001-06.

The Small Arms Survey Transparency Barometer is updated annually and revised online.

[Editor's note: Since 2003 the Small Arms Survey has published the Transparency Barometer to assess countries' self-reporting on small arm and light weapon exports. As delayed reports from governments often update already-published figures and methodology is periodically reviewed, the Barometers are retroactively rescored. For this reason, considerable differences exist between original Barometers available in hard copies of Small Arms Survey yearbooks and their revised online versions.]
