*Consumer imports to Iraq went from $0 in 2000 to nearly $250 million in 2008. Because of the difference in scope, the consumer imports ratio was not included for Iraq.
** Iraq did not register votes at the UN between 2000 and 2003. Therefore there is no UN votes ratio relative to 2000. Please find Iraq's UN votes between 2004-2008 below.
***Arms sales from the U.S. to Iraq went from $0 to over $ 1 billion. Because this difference is of an entirely different scope and the starting point was essentially 0, the arms ratio has not been included in the index. Arms delivery statistics are available below.
