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 Datasets can be accessed through the "External" links; local copies are available for when links become outdated or datasets are removed from the web.

  • To identify specific Agreements related to a given dataset, click on the appropriate LINEAGE link.
  • 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.
  • For environmental performance indicator datasets not yet linked to specific agreements, click here.
  • For NON-environmental indicator datasets (economic, demographic, etc.) that may be useful in an analysis, click here.
  • Reformatted data in a standard Excel format designed by the IEA Project to increase compatibility across datasets will be made available soon.

The report presents an overview of air pollutant emission data reported by the EU-27 Member States between the years 1990 to 2005. Across the EU-27, the reported emissions of nitrogen oxides in 2005 have decreased by more than 34 %, and sulphur dioxide by around 70 % since 1990. Significant reductions have also occurred for other pollutants during this period. The emission reductions have taken place across many of the economic sectors reported by countries — transport, energy, agriculture and waste. 1990-2005 Various Local Copy External Website
