Time series of the indexed values of GDP, stocks of cars in the EU27, total CO2 emissions of cars, total car kilometres travelled, total fuel consumption of private cars and average specific fuel consumption of cars.
In order to calculate the total kilometres travelled by cars in the EU27, the raw value of the EU27 stock of cars is multiplied by the raw value of the annual distance travelled by cars in the EU27 for each year. In order to calculate the total CO2 emissions of cars in the EU27, the previously calculated value of the total kilometres travelled by car is multiplied by the raw value of the CO2 emissions of cars per km in the EU27 for each year. Subsequently in order to calculate all the indexed values for the base year 1990, all the EU27 raw values of each year (1990-2009) which was retrieved from the ODYSSEE database or calculated as described previously, is divided by the EU27 value of year 1990 and then multiplied by 100. For the GDP values, data from the ODYSEE database were used because of a longer timespan, going back to 1990 for the aggregated values of EU27. Otherwise data values are identical to Eurostat data available for EU27 from year 1995 and onwards.
