Note that neither short cycle biomass burning nor large-scale biomass burning are taken into account for the per capita emissions, which are calculated with the population data of UNDP Review (2010).

The 2009-2011 trends were estimated for energy-related sectors based on fossil fuel consumption for 2009-2011 from the BP Review of World Energy 2011 (BP, 2012), for cement production based on preliminary data from the US Geological Survey (USGS, 2012), except for China for which use was made of National Bureau of Statistics of China (NBS) (2009, 2010, 2011).
