Since 1980 the Natural Resources Defense Council has sponsored the Nuclear Weapons Data Center. The purpose of the Center is to compile and disseminate accurate information on the world's nuclear forces in order to promote a more informed debate on nuclear weapons and arms control issues. The Center has published five volumes of its Databook series describing U.S., Soviet, British, French and Chinese nuclear arsenals, and the U.S. nuclear weapons production complex. Since May 1987, the Center staff has contributed the "NRDC Nuclear Notebook" column to The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
