    Defintion: Data in this table are calculated by dividing the data on total carbon dioxide emissions from the consumption and flaring of fossil fuels in million metric tons carbon equivalent units for each country and year by the GDP in thousands for each country and year.

    Metric tons of carbon equivalent can be converted to metric tons of carbon dioxide by multiplying by 44/12.

    Data for the most recent year are preliminary.

    Sum of components may not equal total, due to independent rounding.

    Glossary of Terms

NOTE: The table on this page is re-published from data provided by the Energy Information Administration. No claims are made regarding the accuracy of carbon economy intensity information contained here. All suggestions for corrections of any errors about national carbon intensity should be addressed to Energy Information Administration.
