Welcome to our redesigned data platform! This platform contains links to many new tools and types of data to help journalists, civil society, researchers, and policy makers understand and analyze U.S. security assistance. The below Security Aid, Economic Aid, Arms Sales, and Military Trainees databases include tons of data regularly updated and sourced from U.S. government reports, much of which is not included in U.S. government-run public databases. For each database, users can now choose to view the data through a dashboard of interactive charts, a pivot table like our old database, or download the entire database. Users can also click on pull-down menus to access specific recipient and program dashboards. For more information on these databases and our data collection methodology, click to view our User’s Guide. We hope you find this new platform helpful and look out for new updates! For questions and suggestions, please contact us.
Recipients include individual countries, international organizations, and groups of countries such as "African Regional" or "Global". Groups of countries exists when the U.S. government does not identify the specific recipient country.
A Program is a specific U.S. government funding account or authority created by Congress. For each program, Congress has created specific parameters for how the U.S. government may use the program. More information on U.S. security aid program parameters can be found here.
