The CAIT Country GHG emissions collection applies a consistent methodology to create a six-gas, multi-sector, and internationally comparable data set for 186 countries. CAIT enables data analysis by allowing users to quickly narrow down by year, gas, country/state, and sector. Automatic calculations for percent changes from prior year, per capita, and per GDP are also available. Users are presented with clear and customizable data visualizations that can be readily shared through unique URLs or embedded for further use online.
