bits and pieces

I wonder if there is any correlation between the timewise rise and fall of GDP and the timewise rise and fall of ... say, number of people in the armed forces---in the U.S.--in other particular countries? In general in the world? or rather than "armed forces", what if we check for correlation with say ... number of people killed violently *within* the country, or how about *outside* the country, but by Americans, or how about just deaths of american soldiers. Just curious. How about instead of GDP, we ask it about general happiness levels? or longevity? Or suicide. So much data, so little time.
