CO2 time series 1990-2012 per capita for world countries


Source: European Commission, Joint Research Centre (JRC)/PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency. Emission Database for Global Atmospheric Research (EDGAR), release version 4.2. http://edgar.jrc.ec.europe.eu, 2011

The 2009-2012 trends were estimated for energy-related sectors based on fossil fuel consumption for 2009-2012 from the BP Review of World Energy 2012 (BP, 2013), for cement production based on preliminary data from the US Geological Survey (USGS, 2013), except for China for which use was made of National Bureau of Statistics of China (NBS) (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013). Note that neither short cycle biomass burning nor large-scale biomass burning are taken into account.

The per capita emissions are calculated with the population data of UNDP Review (2010, 2012).
