Performance Indicator Data

"Performance data" refers to datasets that can be used to assess the influence of IEAs. They consist of country-year data on the behavior or environmental quality targeted by the IEA. Datasets can be accessed through the "External" links; local copies are available for when links become outdated or datasets are removed from the web.

  • Original Data FILE links are copies of the original source data kept on the IEA server to maintain copies when URLs change or data is deleted.
  • Original Data LINKS go directly to the original source for the data provided here.
