Abstract : This note documents the Defense and Development in Sub-Saharan Africa database, a collection of statistics from various sources, chiefly the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. The purpose of the database is to clarify the methods and figures used to measure defense spending in various countries by presenting the different data sources and explaining how they were compiled. The statistics in the database cover 41 African countries for the years 1970-1985 and fall under ten main headings; debt; price indexes; income; military expenditures; foreign military presence; government expenditures; national accounts; development assistance; social/development assistance; social/political indicators; and weather. This volume contains the codebook for the database with all of the relevant documentation. The second volume (ADA-195 318), presents the database in the form of several tables. Keywords: National defense; Developing nations; Military budgets; Economics.
