Information in the above table originates from customs data compiled by the UN Statistics Division (Comtrade database).
This data was accessed by COAT using the NISAT database which is produced by the

Source Notes:
"Many transfers (possibly a majority) of small arms never pass through customs, especially government-to-government transfers that are transported through military or other channels."
Haug, M et al.: "Shining a Light on Small Arms Exports: The Record of State Transparency", Small Arms Survey (2002)

"Even though the majority of the information [in the NISAT database] comes from official government sources, in many cases it is incomplete and only offers a partial snapshot of the global trade in small arms and light weapons."
