  • Total Available Military Manpower Reaching Service Age Annually by Country


    Manpower reaching military age allows for a glimpse into a nation's available fighting force in a given year.

    The portion of the population that reaches military age annually is included in the final GFP ranking as a refining factor used in considering overall military manpower. A large population does not necessarily equate to a large stock of able-bodied personnel suitable for fighting.


    The data presented below is through 2016.
