Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions related to domestic final expenditures, by region, 2002

Table summary
This table displays the results of greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions related to domestic final expenditures to, total and canada, calculated using canada, united states, china, rest of world and megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent units of measure (appearing as column headers).

  To Total
Canada United States China Rest of World
  megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent
Canada 401 217 3 68 689
United States 58 6,232 19 448 6,757
China 14 178 4,120 665 4,977

Total 530 7,359 4,340 23,103 35,331  Note 1
There is no official global CO2 eq estimate for 2002. It was estimated based on Canada's share of 2000 global CO2 eq emissions as cited in World Resources Institute, 2010, Climate Analysis Indicators Tool (CAIT), (accessed July 20, 2011). This share was assumed to be unchanged for 2002 and applied to Canada's 2002 emissions to estimate the global figure.
Diagonal cells include emissions from direct household fuel consumption so that the sum of each row equals the country total.
