KEY: R = revised, P = preliminary.

NOTES: Electric utility emissions are distributed across end-use sectors. Previously, the emissions due to nonutility electricity consumption used to be allocated to the industrial sector. Starting in 2000, the nonutility electric emissions were distributed across sectors for all the years reported.

Numbers may not add to totals due to rounding.

Tons of carbon can be converted to tons of carbon dioxide gas by multiplying by 3.667. One ton of carbon equals 3.667 tons of carbon dioxide gas.
