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 Datasets can be accessed through the "External" links; local copies are available for when links become outdated or datasets are removed from the web.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