A table of nations scored by their transparency in small arms transfers to other states, the Transparency Barometer includes all countries which ranked among the world's major small arms exporters at least once in recent years.

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 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.]
