AbstractPlease use the updated version of this dataset which incorporates updates to input data as well as correction of errors in the original dataset. For a detailed description of the changes please consult the CHANGELOG included in the data description document of the new version.
This dataset combines several published datasets to create a comprehensive set of greenhouse gas emission pathways for every country and Kyoto gas covering the years 1850 to 2014 and all UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) member states as well as most non-UNFCCC territories. The data resolves the main IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) 1996 categories. For CO₂ from energy and industry time series for subsectors are available.
List of datasets included in this data publication:
PRIMAP-hist_v1.0_14-Apr-2016.csv: With numerical extrapolation of all time series to 2014. PRIMAP-hist_no_extrapolation_v1.0_14-Apr-2016.csv: Without numerical extrapolation of missing values.
When using this dataset or one of its updates, please cite the precise version of the dataset used. Please consider also citing the relevant original sources.

MethodsCountry resolved data is combined from different sources using the PRIMAP emissions module (Nabel et. al., 2011). It is supplemented with growth rates from regionally resolved sources and numerical extrapolations. Regional deforestation emissions are downscaled to country level using estimates of the deforested area obtained from potential vegetation and calculations for the needed agricultural land.
