Statistical Methodology for Assigning Emissions to Industries in the United States: 1970 to 1990
This report presents the results of a study that develops a methodology to assign emissions to the manufacturing and nonmanufacturing industries that comprise the industrial sector of the EPA’s national emission estimates for 1970 to 1990. First, the methodology followed by the U.S. EPA to estimate national emissions of the six criteria air pollutants is described. Next, the procedures employed in this study to assign emissions to specific industries are discussed. Finally, the methodology is implemented and the emission estimates for each of the industries are presented in two spreadsheets. The U.S. EPA has replaced the methodology that derives the emissions used in this report. As a result, the U.S. EPA revised its estimates of emissions for 1970 to 1990. Statistical Methodology for Assigning Emissions to Industries in the United States, Revised Estimates: 1970 to 1997 uses many of the procedures developed in this report to assign the revised estimates of emissions for 1970 to 1997.
This is a technical report whose intended audience consists of individuals interested in developing environmental accounts.
