Definition and Selection Criteria
In the UN small arms Programme of Action Implementation Monitor (PoAIM Phase 1), the Small Arms Survey scores, then ranks each of 159 UN Member States against its commitments to the PoA.*
The Survey's PoAIM score for each state reflects how well that country has implemented its Programme of Action and International Tracing Instrument (ITI) commitments overall, according to its own national reports.
