Military personnel is made up of the total of all active members of the regular armed forces as well as paramilitary units of a state. Reservists are inactive, former soldiers who can be activated for military and civilian deployments when needed. These numbers were summed up to represent the total number of possible military personnel. By calculating the ratio of military personnel per one doctor, it is possible to compare the use of resources by the social sector and the military sector.
