SIPRI Footnote: Estimates of Timor Leste's GDP from the IMF were revised very substantially upwards in 2012 due to the inclusion of oil and gas revenues that were previously excluded. As a result, the figures for Timor Leste's military spending as a share of GDP are much lower than those shown in previous editions of the SIPRI Yearbook or in the online database.
