Note about the data used in this article: In the 2016 Defense Markets Report, the International Trade Administration (ITA) identified all of the HS codes that are associated with defense exports; the HS codes they identified are 10-digit HS codes. The trade data used in this report are based on 6-digit HS classifications of the ITA codes because WISERTrade only includes the 6-digit level of trade specificity. Therefore, some of the trade data may be overestimated due to the inclusion of exports that are characterized by the 6-digit HS codes but not the 10-digit codes.
